About This Wine

 

This medium bodied, deep red wine's fruity bouquet is infused with traces of cranberry and cherry, with suggestions of smoke. Classical Merlot bright fruit and black plum flavors are enhanced by raspberry, tobacco box and anise tones, pleasing oak tannins and a lingering finish. Complexity and structure were augmented by the addition of small amounts of Petit Verdot and Tannat in the final blend.

Aging Statement

 

This wine may age for 6 years or more. Aging is an imprecise art; excessive aging could lead to a negative effect. Ideally, try some every year and enjoy the wine’s journey. Keep at a uniform temperature - 55 degrees is best. It is perfectly normal for a well aged wine to develop minor sediment in the bottle and on the cork surface.
