This Merlot is blended with 3% Cabernet Sauvignon, also from the Louvau Vineyard, by selecting barrels with the greatest varietal focus and expression. The wine was fermented in small lots and aged for 15 months in roughly half American and half French oak barrels before being blended and bottled.
PalateRipe fruit aromas of fresh berries, red plum and cherry are robust and lead to rich flavors of fresh berry pie, milk chocolate and notes of black tea on the palate.
NoseThis Dry Creek Valley Merlot opens with vivid aromas of macerated fresh mixed berries, lavender perfume and brown spice notes. The nose of the wine rings true on the palate with pure fruit flavors of raspberry, boysenberry, spice and subtle black licorice.
