SKU: MERRYISTGIFT1.5

A dark red color in the glass, the wine shows an aromatic interplay of dark plums, blackberries, violets, caramel and nutmeg. Cassis, soy and earth notes emerge on the palate, which broadens out through the mid-palate to a long and extended finish. A stony minerality adds an additional layer of complexity. While the wine is accessible in its adolescence, it will only continue to gain intricacy and depth over the next ten years.

SKU: MERRYAPGIFT1.5

Displaying a scarlet color in the glass, this wine immediately offers tantalizing aromas of fresh plum and dark cherry, interwoven with hints of graphite, vanilla, nutmeg and tobacco. On the palate, the elegance of the texture, coupled with the sweet red fruit flavors, lead to an expression of vibrancy and finesse. Kirsch, clove and loamy earth flavors emerge with a subtle saline tinge, outlined by a smooth structure that is ambitious and persistent in its expansive finish. The concentration of this wine provides immense drinking pleasure now, but also indicates promise for a long, graceful aging in the years to come.

SKU: MERRYZNGIFT1.5

A pure garnet color in the glass, the wine displays aromas of blueberries, dried dark fruit, licorice, exotic spice and crushed rock over a subtle balsamic note. The addition of a herbaceous sense of fennel pollen and bay laurel on the nose reflects the chaparral on the hillsides that surround the vineyard. Expansive and juicy from the front to the mid-palate, this wine is exuberant in its concentration and length. While it’s a powerful wine in its youth, it is accessible now and will only continue to develop in complexity and depth over the next five years.
