2011 Vintner Select Merlot

Aromas of ripe cherry, seductive blue fruit, floral notes, and a hint of brown sugar introduce a wine with a lush, supple palate and finish that lingers. This is a classic example of Merlot as a variety – likeable and pretty with flavors that enhance each other to create a melodious experience. The wine is 100% Clone 3 Merlot from our Lower Mountain Top vineyard block, also the source of the Merlot component of our Reserve Claret.
