An exceptional Merlot offered from this small, boutique winery with a blend of Merlot and Cab. This hillside Merlot shows great Bordeaux-like character with spicy notes of fresh herbs, dried oregano, and black cherry framed by dusty tannins. Enjoy this wine over the next few years as it's in its prime.
