The grapes for this wine come from a vineyard on a rise in the heart of Alexander Valley – the same vineyard that garnered our 2004 Merlot the title of Best American Merlot Under $20 in Food & Wine Magazine (October, 2007).
Classic deep purple in color with red highlights. Rose petal, violet, cherry and plum aromas are accented by notes of cedar and toasted coconut. Black cherry, fig and blueberry flavors are complemented by a hint of vanilla and spice on the finish. This juicy, plush wine has a lingering finish with soft, medium tannins and firm acidity.
