Cab Merlot2010

2010 Cabernet-Merlot

Deep red/purple in color with complex aromas of dark chocolate, dried plum, toasted nuts, smoked bacon and blackberries. Well balanced with great weight and richness on the palate, good mouthfeel and a long finish.


Each grape variety in the final blend was kept separate in the winery. Each variety underwent a short cold soak, then a long maceration of 5-6 weeks on skins. Aged in a combination of French and American oak, the barrels for the final blend were selected after nearly two years in barrel, and bottled unfined and unfiltered.
