The elegant and exquisite Signature Collection Merlot is a rare, 100% Merlot of limited production. This is a Cabernet-lovers Merlot that delivers an ample fruit-forward profile with soft tannins and balanced minerality. One of Tamber Bey's original wines from the old block in the Deux Chevaux Vineyard.
Aromas of black cherry and black plum make the initial introduction, followed by confectionary notes, allspice, light curry powder and traditional poached pear. The mouthfeel is juicy, lush and plush. Fruit with nice acidity delivers freshness to the mid-palate. The finish is savory.
The Deux Chevaux Vineyard is a
60-acre vineyard situated in the Yountville Appellation, northeast of the town of Yountville. The vineyard is planted with Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Chardonnay. Deux Chevaux is French for “two horses,” the namesake of Tamber Bey.
