Aromas of blackberry and black cherry, with a background of crushed stone. On the palate, concentrated fresh blackberry and black plum are supported by fine tannins, balanced by bright acidity, and lifted by distinctive mineral accents. Rich black cherry notes round out the satisfying finish to this bold, elegant, and complex Merlot.

  • v90

The 2017 Merlot is deep, fruity and quite expressive. Black cherry, plum new leather, dried herbs and spice are nicely layered in a deep, resonant Merlot.

The 2017 Merlot is all from estate-grown fruit, with 87% coming from their Suscol Springs vineyard and 13% from Cakebread Winery Ranch vineyard. It was aged for 17 months in 55% new French Oak. Deep garnet-purple, the nose comes bounding of the glass with notes of blueberry pie, baked plums and chocolate box with hints of licorice and spice box. Medium-bodied, the palate gives up intense blue and black fruit preserves flavors with a wicked backbone of freshness and light grip of chewy tannins, finishing long and spicy.
