A fine and delicious Merlot from underrated Lake County, filled with juicy flavors of blackberries, cassis and cherries. This well-made wine also benefits from smooth, ripe tannins and balanced acidity. Shows the potential of its appellation.
There’s a big gulp of intensely ripe fruit flavor that fills the mouth with sweet blackberries and mocha. You’ll also find hints of overripeness in the slightly raisiny notes and a Porty sweetness on the finish.
Smooth in texture, with a velvety softness that carries blackberry and coffee flavors. This dry wine finishes with a tannic astringency from the Cabernet that’s unlikely to age away.
