Tasting Notes

The 2009 Winemaker Series, Lot #1 Merlot is powerful, yet supple. Not surprisingly, the aromas and flavors are reflective of mountain-grown fruit with rich red cherry/berry characters along with vanilla bean, floral and anise notes. On the palate the wine has ripe, smooth tannins on the entry with well-balanced acidity.

Food Pairings

Pan-seared duck breast with wild mushrooms or Osso Buco
