Winemaker Notes:

The 2012 vintage of Merlot speaks to the incredible growing season we experienced in the Dry Creek Valley. At first swirl, fragrant aromas of red cherry, sage and oregano fill the senses. Several more minutes reveal subtle nuances in the wine such as dried flowers, cardamom and wet stone. The palate is full of wonderful fruity complexity combining a mixture of red cherry, black cherry and red plum. The tannins are silky and smooth, with excellent structure and balance. This beautiful wine is easy to love with a lush, rounded quality that lingers on and demands another sip.
