A unique take on Merlot. The result of gentle hand-sorting and processing, leaving behind only the highest quality whole berries for fermentation. Racked to a concrete tank for five weeks, followed by 20 months in French oak.

Bing cherry, oak spice, fresh pomegranate juice, candied orange peel, and anise on the nose. Taste of big, bold fruit and tannin mix, with a toasty oak spice on the palate.

Winemaker Notes
These Merlot grapes were gently hand sorted and processed, leaving behind only the highest quality whole berries to be fermented. The Merlot was fermented in bins and punched down by hand three times a day. After a gentle basket pressing, the wine was racked to French oak barrels where it aged for 20 months.
