To naturally soften tannins and enhance varietal complexity, Tony allowed the grapes to undergo extended maceration. He then pressed the wine and transferred it to French oak barrels (45% new oak) to undergo a long malolactic fermentation for roundness and depth. Using Syrah as a blender, adds a dark velvety feel to lush berry flavor profile of the Merlot.

Wine EnthusiastThis classically styled wine offers black olive, dusty-leathery tannin and jolts of clove and cedar, bringing it all together in a soft, seamless varietal expression. Along the way, expect to meet a juicy hit of grenadine and black currant, a comfy marriage between savory and fruity.
