Merlot Reserve 2016 - Library Release
A combination of three Texas High Plains vineyards combined with our estate vineyard were used to produce this Reserve Merlot. The culture of Merlot in Texas, though not easy to farm, produces some of the most concentrate fruit in any American Wine Region. From the heavy canopy for shade in the heat of the summer to pulling leafs three weeks before harvest to insure even ripening – our Merlot cultivation is one of detail, bringing to you a well-balanced and rich wine. Fruit driven with a very mature palate and rich tannin structure, the Reserve Merlot presents as a dry red wine, with lush red fruits, earthiness and fresh tobacco.
Aromatics: Rich, jammy fruit, earth, violets, vanilla
On The Palate: Cassis, red fruit, tobacco with a lingering fruit finish
