Oh Merlot, my friend, my poor little picked on grape, my beautiful example of proving everyone wrong! You are not some wimpy wine; you are not a movie cliché. You are bold and soft, fruit forward and balanced, tasty young and with amazing aging potential.
Our lovely 2011 vintage aromatics are enough to keep you satisfied with only your nose in the glass. Over flowing with wild strawberry, blue and black berries and Lincoln rose this wine continues to delight. Found admits the fruits and florals are hints of light pepper and caramel. Moving into the soft, round, velvety mouth we find bright tart raspberry jam balanced with soft oak and smooth tannins. This lovely Merlot will make you question why you ever thought badly of this noble varietal.
