Winemaker Kian Tavakoli Notes
The Merlot expressed traditional red fruit notes with a touch of oakiness. The wine was fermented in a stainless steel tank and aged in 100% French oak barrels for 17 months. Blending took place in November 2015 where we added Cabernet Franc for its floral element, Petit Verdot for its earthiness, and Malbec for a its dark fruit impact. After blending, the wine was returned to the barrels until bottling.
