Pleasant fruit on the nose as well as oak, our 100% Merlot from California is a big wine. Merlot gets an undeserved bad rap, but when treated right it makes an amazing wine. I do that by aging our Merlot in French Oak barrels for one full year and by using the same winemaking techniques as all our bid bold red wines. Our Merlot is balanced and complex, yet approachable for any occasion or none at all. A great wine for drinking any day.
