Tasting Notes

A brawny wine with great complexity. Very concentrated with aromas of bright fruit are immediately apparent on the nose. Black cherries, currant and while berries dominate this spicy and rich, full-bodied Merlot, which coats the palate with lush ripe fruit with a caramel finish.

Vineyard Designation

Catspaw Vineyards

Vineyard Notes

Catspaw Vineyards: Located on the Kelseyville Bench in Lake County, CA at elevations between 1600 - 1700 ft. This yields good minerality, but minimizes stress on the vines, resulting in greater intensity of fruit.
