2010 Winemaker Series Lot 1 Merlot
A generous nose of Bing cherry, strawberry rhubarb, bay laurel, sandalwood and sweet baking spices. This exceptional Napa Valley Merlot is rich and concentrated, without being heavy, and has round, structured tannins and rich fruit. Pleasing notes of cherry compote and espresso round out the long finish.
