2011 Merlot, Deux Chevaux Vineyard
Our 100% Merlot from the Yountville Appellation Deux Chevaux Vineyard represents a fruit-driven wine with aromas of black cherry, black stone fruit, turmeric, light kirsch notes and granite. The mouth feel is masculine for a Merlot. Flavors of cherry and cherry pit evolving with time into cassis are mixed with a bit of cola and quinine. The finish delivers dark chocolate powder, graphite and sweet oak notes. Overall, this is a lush, seamless wine that will continue to improve with age.
