This is a big, ripe Merlot with overtones of black cherry, plum fruit and a little dusty currant. Substantial but supple. Medium tannins allow this wine to drink well over the next 3 to 4 years. It has a type of earthy fruit in the mouth and nose, which gives the wine a lingering finish. Open one hour before drinking to give the fruit and oak an opportunity to develop. It would pair quite well with roasted salmon, hamburgers, or even a hearty pasta dish. 3,500 cases produced.
|The pleasure of good wine is not just about balanced flavors, a fragrant nose, or lush colors. It’s also about the moment when that first sip is taken, with family or friends, over favorite foods or during special occasions.

His long-time experience with growers from premier Napa and Sonoma vineyards allows him to seek out and then hand-select exceptional fruit each growing season. Michael then works closely with winemaker Richard Bruno to craft those grapes into stylish wines you can enjoy every day, or serve with great pride at those events in your life that deserve something special. These are wines of high quality and exceptional value — wines you’ll want to share with those you love, and with those who love wine.
