proper Cellaring recommendations
Our Merlot is made to age for 15 - 25 years in your cellar. Of course, there are some vintage-to-vintage variations to this recommendation. Wine should be stored horizontally at 55 - 57 degrees.

One of the most complex aromas I’ve ever seen on any Merlot. Exploding out of the glass are ripe red fruits, candle was, violet and other floral aromas, caramel, graham crackers, and a puree of bramble fruits. On the second day a beautiful not of chocolate and coffee appear, along with the fantastic note of sweet earth and dust. The acid of the wine is very refreshing and balances the long, lush, soft mouthfeel. The wine has laser precision and is quite structured for Merlot — and while drinking great now, will reward a few years of aging.
