2011  Merlot

This Merlot has really nice fruit flavors with medium grained tannins. Adding the Cabernet Sauvignon brought a little more structure and backbone to this wine. Cabernet Sauvignon blends, brightens the fruit and really rounds out the mouthfeel. The 2011 Merlot has been in the bottle for almost one year now, and we are excited as to how this wine has developed with time and hope you enjoy it as well.
