Reserve Merlot 2022
A beautifully layered wine, rich with red fruits, cocoa and soft, silky tannins, dinner's perfect companion. Sourced from the High Plains of Texas, the 2022 Reserve Merlot showcases our 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 equal parts French and American oak barrels for nearly a year and a half allows savory spices to blend with the warm blackberry and plum, with mid-palate of cacao and lingering tobacco finish.
Aromatics: Baking spices, ripe plum, vanilla, undertones of tobacco leaf
On the Palate: Silky and voluptuous, ripe blueberries, mocha and herbal tea finish
