The 2010 Merlot is aged for 14 months in 300-liter French oak barrels, of which 30% are new. It has a luscious bouquet of dark plum, Valrohna chocolate and a dash of spice. The palate is full-bodied with rounded dark cherry and blackberry fruit. The acidity is in tune with the fruit lending the finish surprising grace and elegant. What a lovely Merlot! Drink now-2015.

Bright, with a slightly tangy red currant and damson plum core, laced with hints of savory herb and light toasty vanilla. Drink now through 2013. 1,700 cases made.
