Our 2005 Estate Merlot, sourced exclusively from our hand tended vineyard in the esteemed Rutherford Appellation, opens with rich aromas of blackberries intertwined with cinnamon and cocoa. Echoing the vibrant nose, the palate is plush with notes of dark berries and currants, while dark chocolate lingers through the velvety finish. With 24 months of French oak aging, this wine is delicious now and will cellar beautifully for eight to ten years. Enjoy this luscious Merlot with a pork tenderloin with balsamic cranberry sauce or simply grilled lamb chops.

 We only make a reserve in those years we think one lot (single picking) stands above the other 12 to 15 lots. Some years the vines will produce a few small, tight clusters further up the shoot than the normal fruit position, known as second crop, which are green at harvest. Most times second crops are not picked, but in 2007, winemaker Brad Warner won out and we laboriously picked it. It was aged an additional year in French oak. We think it is spectacular, and we hope you agree. Enjoy!
