Our 2016 Merlot from Orchard Avenue Vineyard is dark garnet in the glass. The nose shows deep red fruit followed by dusty currants, florals, mocha and hints of toasty vanilla. This is a sexy and seductive wine in the mouth - dark red cherry fruit, currants, earth and spice along with soft dusty tannins on the lingering finish.  Aged in French Oak (75% new) - merlot with a splash of cabernet franc.
