Alcohol/vol 14.6%
Subtle aromas of red fruits, a hint of milk chocolate and a touch of earth waft from the glass. In the mouth, intense plums, strawberries and briar, rush across across the palate. As the wine opens up, blueberry notes become evident. The firm acidity helps maintain the structure, which is balanced against the moderate tannins that drive the finish. Pure, well rounded and delicious. Drink now, but will improve over the next 7 to 10 years.

Creamy and rich-tasting, featuring plush dark fruit, Asian spice and forest floor flavors. Sanguine accents show midpalate, with notes of cinnamon bark on the finish. Drink now through 2024. 4,000 cases made.

The only wine presented, the 2017 Merlot has a darker, earthy core of red and black fruits, chocolate, and spice to go with a medium-bodied, lightly textured, balanced style on the palate. It comes up short on depth and richness but stays lively and satisfying.

This red is thick and sinewy in leather, smoky oak and spice. Full bodied and robust in style, it weaves between black pepper and blackberry with ease, showing a wide appeal.

The 2017 Merlot is a soft, fruity wine to drink over the next year or two, as it is already starting to fade.
