Merlot Reserve 2008

Merlot Reserve 2008

With an enticing nose, this Merlot offers notes of rose petal, smoke, and blood orange. The palate is medium bodied and fine but firm tannins frame the cherry fruit, and it finishes with hints of maduro and rose.  Drink now through 2023.  One per customer (only 10 bottles available at launch).

Winemaker Notes
Aiming to enhance aromatics, develop soft tannin and intensify fruit forwardness, we began with a 3 day cold soak, followed up with careful yeast selection The juice was inoculated immediately and left on the skins for only 7 days, pressed and racked to barrel for aging.
