Merlot 2020

Merlot 2020

Of all our Bordeaux red wines, this wine is the prettiest. Aged in neutral barrels, there is no new oak on this wine. It has intense red fruit, vanilla bean, and bramble on the nose, followed by soft, silky tannins with black cherry on the palate. It has the classic creamy Merlot texture with a long raspberry finish. It is a pure expression of Merlot from the outstanding 2020 vintage. It will age wonderfully over the next 5-10 years.
