Pulling the cellar together to represent the best of a tough vintage, this is a blend of 3 vintages of Merlot from our estate. During blending, we put one fifth each of 2017 and 2019 Merlot into our 2018 Merlot. We felt this created layers of structure, aroma, and flavor that are harnessed by some voluminous tannins. Medium core and garnet to show some youth, this wine opens with notes of dried herbs, red licorice and ripe plum. On first sip, you find this to be a very round, full bodied wine that has cherry, baking spice, and cola all along the finish.
