Merlot

2013

Our Grand Reserve Merlot is crafted with grapes hand-selected from specific areas of our Jackson Estates Grown vineyards in Sonoma County. An intense concentration of black fruit and dark chocolate is enhanced by 14 months of oak barrel aging. There is seductive fruit tone on the nose and a long, velvety finish.
