Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Back from the dead, the Merlot has a classic claret character. Black tea, northland blueberries and wet concrete. The silky texture slides gracefully across the palate leaving behind hints of sweet plums, warm cedar planks, and freshly ground spices. As the wine glides toward the finish, you’re grateful for friends and excited for the future.
