Released mid 1995 this superb Merlot quickly grabbed 2 Gold Medals in the first competitions entered. The wine has a dark ruby color. The nose exhibits a rich, jammy character with cherry and oak aromas. There is an excellent balance of fruit, acid and soft tannins in the flavor. This is followed by a smooth, long finish.

Extremely enjoyable now, it will continue to improve for years to come. It is made in a Bordeaux-style blend of 81% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and 9% Cabernet Franc.
