TASTING NOTES

ES Merlot

2015 Estate Selection
Merlot

Estate Selection merlots are blended from superior barrel lots and typically come from our older vineyard blocks.  This wine looks dark and rich in the glass.  It has a slightly ‘smoky’ aroma along with some cedar notes.  


When we sat around tasting, the first comment I wrote down was “Mmmmm-mmm!” from someone who really liked it!  More specific comments included: “Plum, plum, plum”, “Dark red cherry”, “Soft tannins”, “Cedar”, “A hint of apricot”.


The wine has a lovely soft mouth-feel and the ripe tannins sustain a long finish.
