2016 Merlot - Oak Knoll

​Merlot - Oak Knoll District

2017 Merlot - Oak Knoll

From Orchard Avenue Vineyard located on the valley floor approaching the foothills of the Mayacaymus Mountains. The wine is deep garnet/purple in the glass.  The expressive nose opens with baked plums, hints of spice cake, herbs and dried roses.  The medium-to-full palate offers an array of dark red berry fruit, currants, earth and spice along with soft dusty tannins on the medium-long finish.  Aged in French Oak (75% new) - merlot with a splash of cabernet franc.
