The 2012 bottling, according to the winemaker: "With a truly unique nose full of bright cherry, plum and distinct varietal expression, this wine has a lovely soft entry with the Merlot while the Cabernet Franc gives it its structure. The beauty in this wine is the balance and length of the finish with sweet lingering tannins. Recommended to decant. This wine can easily be enjoyed over the following 20+ years."

Merlot

- A very popular red grape variety found in the great wines of St. Emilion and Pomerol. It is the most planted variety in Bordeaux, and it has also become an extremely fashionable red in many regions including California. Although it has a reputation to be smooth, and easy to drink when young, Merlot is also capable of producing extremely intense wines as well. It is often used as a blending agent with Cabernet Sauvignon.
