This red blend made of primarily Merlot came from vines situated in clay and limestone soil. Hand harvested Merlot, Cabernet, and Cabernet Franc grapes. Bright medium-deep ruby. Highly perfumed aromas of blackberry, violet and chocolate mint. Densely packed with berry fruit flavors but at the same time juicy and bright, with good mineral and floral lift giving a deceptive lightness to the black fruit and cedar flavors. It is a food-friendly, deep red wine full of black-plum and dark-cherry fruit ending with a supple, persistent finish.
