Reserve Merlot 2018
A wonderfully uncomplicated wine, rich with red fruits, cocoa and soft, silky tannins, this is very food friendly. Sourced from grape growers across the great state of Texas, the 2018 Reserve Merlot showcases the warm-climate growing conditions, allowing the fruit to shine, while the tannic structure plays the part of the quiet backbone. Oak aging in a mixture of French and American oak barrels for nearly 2 years allows savory spices to blend with the warm raspberry, blackberry fruits, with mid-palate of mocha and lingering green tea finish.
Aromatics: eucalyptus, raspberry, overripe plum, undertones of creosote
On the Palate: Silky and voluptuous, ripe blueberries, mocha and green tea finish
