With noticeable notes of dark red fruits, including blackberries and blueberries, this Reserve Merlot is amazingly soft on the palate. Its velvety journey expands broadly in the mouth, and its suppleness is satisfying to even the most discerning judge. Plush with well-integrated tannins it has hints of toasty oak on the finish. This 2014 Reserve Merlot is a 100% varietal wine. It was cave fermented and aged for 24 months in new “Haute Futaie” French oak barrels and bottled unfined and unfiltered.
