The 2017 Merlot is 100% grown on one of the warmest hillsides in the Umpqua Valley. Aged two years in French oak barrels and held in bottle extra time to soften the acidity. This Merlot offers rich Blackberry and cherry aromas that lead to soft gentle tannins with a velvety mouthfeel. This is a wine you can lay down for some aging or enjoy now with a Filet Mignon or Olive crusted Halibut.
Pairs well with: Filet of beef or Halibut with olive tapenade crust.
