Reserve

Aged for 18 months in French oak barrels, our 2008 Merlot shows a deep garnet color with hints of purple. An enticing nose of mulberry, pine, and cocoa powder is followed by refined notes of sweet fruits. The palate is rich with plum, black cherry and cedar that comes through a smooth, supple mouth-feel, finished with soft, round tannins. While delicious to drink now, it should age well for many years.
