The 2019 Proprietor’s Selection Merlot opens aromas of plum, Bing cherry and baking spices. On the palate, this silky wine opens with flavors of cassis, vanilla and baking spices, structured with finely integrated tannins and bright acid.

Vineyard Notes

The 2019 Growing Season began with heavy rains which enriched the soil with an abundance of nutrients. Fruit set was on course during the spring, just in time for the brief heat spike in June and remaining summer weather. Harvest began in mid-August where only the finest fruit was harvested.

Food Pairing Notes

Enjoy our Proprietor’s Selection Merlot with a smoked duck drizzled with a cherry compote or a garlic and mushroom pappardelle.
