|Appellation:||Stags Leap District|
|Harvest Date:||September 2008|
|Aging:||18 months French Oak|
|Ageability:||3 to 10 years|

Color: Nice dark garnet
Nose: Hints of sweet oak and vanilla mingle with violets, plums and blackberries.
Mouth: This merlot is packed with flavor from start to finish, just as we suggest when we call it a Cabernet lover's Merlot. Mouth-coating tannins provide the framework for the black and blue fruit flavors along with hints of oak and cedar. This wine is supple and rich, while at the same time is well structured and balanced.
