has rich black cherry fruit aromas, with hints of
eucalyptus and oak.


Addition of Syrah brings depth of fruit to the nose and palate,
while the addition of Clone 6 Cabernet sauvignon adds structure to the finish. Soft
tannins balance well with good fruit acidity and concentrated fruit flavors to yield a
wine that will develop well with several years of aging. A rich, concentrated, fullbodied
Merlot with a lingering finish and supple mouthfeel.
