About This Item

This 100% Merlot expresses the concentrated depth of flavor that 39-year-old vines produce. Medium carmine red with notes of red cherry, red current, toasted oak, green peppercorn and liquorice. Flavors of tart cherry, tart plum, vanilla and spice. Medium body, front palate structure tannins with a tart finish. 

Winemaker Notes

This vintage’s fruit comes from 38-year-old vines. I have watched this vineyard develop over the years and it is just reaching its prime in maturity. The backbone of the fruit made exceptional starting material, and the barrel program I selected gave it beautifully textured oak flavors, with some neutral barrels developing loosely structured tannins, with a gorgeously smooth finish. Winemaker: Aimée Sunseri, 5th generation
