Tasting Notes
Aroma: 

An aromatic bouquet of black cherry, blackberry, blueberry and a touch of violet spring from the glass in this 2020 Merlot. 

Palate: 

Medium-bodied with a textured palate filled with jammy fruit flavors, fig and toasted almonds balanced by a touch of earthiness. The finish is structured and satisfying.

Winemaking
Vintage Notes: 

2020 kicked off with ideal growing conditions. Mild temperatures led to evenly developed clusters and an early budbreak was followed by a warm to hot summer. Low winter rains resulted in smaller berries with concentrated flavors. Harvest started in early August and all things pointed to normal yields and exceptional fruit quality.
