The soil and climate of the winery’s ridge top location create a perfect environment for Merlot grapes. The 2000 vintage shows bright, red cherry fruit and slight tea-leaf spice in the aromas. The flavors follow accordingly as this nicely filled Merlot sports a taste of berries and cherries with notes of plum and a touch of sweet oak. As a relatively young Merlot, the wine opens up and improves gracefully in the glass. It has good weight and maintains its sense of poise from start to finish. This full-bodied Merlot packs enough extract and depth to deliver a handsome wine for the next six to eight years. Try it with leg of lamb or a hearty beef stew. 94% Merlot, 6% Cabernet Sauvignon.
