maraschino cherries • oak • french vanilla

Harvested by hand from our friends in Fair Acres, NM, this small batch Merlot is a showstopper. With maraschino cherries on the nose and a harmonious integration of oak and fruit on the palate, this Merlot showcases the beauty of the oak working with the vibrancy of the fruit. This medium to full-bodied Merlot is nuanced with toasted undertones and silky french vanilla. The finish is pleasing with subtle tannins.
