Merlot - Oak Knoll District
2016 MERLOT - OAK KNOLL
Dark garnet in the glass with purple undertones. The nose is deep red frut followed by dusty currants, florals, mocha and hints of toasty vanilla. In the mouth the wine is lush and rich - filling the mouth with dark red and blueberry compote fruit, currants, earth and spice - all framed by smooth but ample tannins. The finish is long and lingering.
Aged in 100% French Oak (75% new/25% one year old barrels)
Composition: 97% merlot/3% cabernet franc
