Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Jammy aromas of ripe juicy berries, & holiday spices, with a velvety, crisp, fruity, medium-to-full body flavor. Mulberry, huckleberry, burnt sugar, toasty oak, and black pepper finish with chewy tannins and moderate oak.
Vineyard Notes
This is our third vintage of merlot from Coquelicot.  The low valley planting is well-suited to Merlot as it stays cold through the morning and gets hot in the afternoon.  This combination produces ripe fruit with well-balanced, natural vibrancy and acidity. 
Winemaker Notes
It is routinely our most aromatic no sulfites added wine with notes of berries, holiday spices and fruit cake, with a crisp, medium-to-full body and medium-long finish.
