This merlot was matured for 18 months in 40% French oak & 60% American oak hogsheads, with 25% being new. Brilliant crimson with a purple hue. Bright red and blue fruit; raspberries, blueberries and plum. Hints of clove and cinnamon stick linger in the background. Subtle hints of oak; cedar, pencil shavings, further lift the fruit and spice. The bright red fruits flow onto the palate giving the wine a juicy mouthfeel. The tannins are soft and balanced allowing the wines fruit to shine through, while still giving the wine structure and length. This balance of fruit, oak and tannin allow this wine to be enjoyed now or into the future.
