The grapes are harvested from vineyards southeast of Ukiah in Mendocino, California. Fermented in stainless steel, the finished wine is then put in a blend of new and used oak for six months prior to bottling.
Red plum, currants and cedar aromas with a touch of earthy goodness. This wine is medium to full-bodied and impeccably balanced with a firm texture and a long, savory finish. Pour a few glasses alongside slow grilled BBQ beef ribs or wild mushroom risotto.

I have avoided Merlot for some time becuse of past poor experiances with it.
This is a Great Merlot and when you price point it, it becomes even a greater Merlot
