The warm, sun-filled afternoons and cool nights of dry creek valley foster the ripe flavors and plush tannins that we love in our merlot grapes. . Our dry creek valley merlot has aromas and flavors of red licorice and blackberry that meld with hints of toasted oak, milk chocolate and roasted coffee.

Lots of brambly notes and dried cherry flavors in this open-textured style. Flinty accents emerge on the structured finish. Drink now. 16,500 cases made.

The 2016 Merlot was aged for 8 months in 20% new French and American oak. Deep garnet-purple colored, it gives up warm plums, baked cherries and mulberry notes with touches of cloves and anise. The palate is medium to full-bodied with round, plush tannins and plenty of juicy fruit, finishing peppery. 16,500 cases produced.
