The 2006 Merlot is bursting with flavors of luscious red plum, intense black cherry and dried cranberry. The 2006 vintage is once again bound to be a favorite with aromas of caramel and pie spices of nutmeg and allspice, this vintage is once again bound to be a favorite. This wine is elegant, graceful and supple with caressing fine tannins and impressive structure.

From the gentle entry to the long lasting, juicy finish we recommend serving this wine with wild mushroom Gruyere pizza, BLT made with late season tomatoes and applewood smoked bacon or a rich flour-less chocolate cake.
