Deep shades of reds and purples commence this wine. Luscious ripe black cherry with some notes of nutmeg, cinnamon, coffee, and toasted oak combine with a hint graphite. Flavors of rich black plum and chocolate, coupled with subtle raspberry and toasted vanillin barrel. A smooth, silky palate with elegant tannins

Merlot harvest kicked off on September 16th, 2016. The fruit was hand-harvested in the cool morning hours and brought to the winery in half-ton bins. Clusters were sorted using a double sorting system: first, the clusters were sorted by hand then the individual berries were sorted to ensure that only the ideal grapes were chosen. These grapes were delivered to a fermenter for a period of resting on skins.
Pairs well with beef, lamb, and veal.
