Our Merlot fruit comes from two blocks atop a knoll in the famed Hyde Vineyard, where harvests typically yield less than two tons per acre. It’s a youthful wine that’s invitingly approachable, while still offering the richness and decadence we love.
OUR TASTING NOTES
The 2015 Merlot will charm Cabernet lovers and Merlot drinkers alike. Its enchanting bouquet of white flowers, wild strawberries and plums are seamlessly woven together with hints of nutmeg, vanilla bean and creamy milk chocolate. Well-balanced acidity and a sumptuous core of black cherries and plum compote gives way to toasty oak and rich, chocolaty tannins.
