Why You'll Love It

Expressive aromas of red fruits, crushed raspberries with a touch of dried fennel. Deep red in the glass with crystal clear clarity. On the palate, the medium-bodied tannins complement the crisp acidity and savory undertones, as the big red fruit flavors wash across the palate. Finishing with generous expressions of blackcurrants, raspberries and a touch of plum with more subtle flavors of dried herbs, forest floor and crushed graphite.

Estate Grown Fruit

Growing Merlot in Mitsuko's Vineyard for over a decade has taught us how to express the depth and elegance of this varietal. The vineyard is comprised of five different Merlot clones which reveal slightly different dimensions of the variety. The micro-climate and soil type of each parcel, along with the varied spacing and rootstocks, provide the grapes with greater complexity of flavor.
