2012 Livermore Valley Merlot
This offering captures the complexity and balance of a young wine while retaining the structure that will allow it to age gracefully. This full-bodied, mouth-filling Merlot displays beautiful blueberry and floral notes underscored by fresh red berry and pomegranate elements which add depth. Subtle hints of wild herbs, contributes a velvety mid-palate with touches of plum and spice. This offering in particular is a layered wine, notable for its fruit intensity, soft, integrated tannins and bright acidity.
