The Vintner Select Merlot swirls with heady aromas of super-ripe cherry, raspberry and blackberry fruit notes.
On the palate, the wine is rounder than round, full of luscious fruit, and finishes with the big, powerful structure of a mountain wine
As in years past, the wine is 100% clone 3 merlot, and is sourced from the same vines that contribute the merlot component to our Reserve Claret.
