Marketing Description:

All of our wines come from our estate vineyard in the eastern hills just south of the Stags Leap appellation. Having an estate vineyard gives us complete control over every detail growing the grapes to enhance and improve the quality of our wines. The 2003 vintage is very accessible and ready to drink with a wide range of dishes. This vintage of Merlot has a refreshing leanness to it, with a bright, tapered finish. It’s a focused wine, with smoky bark notes from a mix of mostly French and a bit of American oak. The flavors and aromas are forward, perfumed plush red fruit, and ripe without being overpowering – a wine that goes with food. There is also a touch of cedar from the oak barrels. The combination of structure, depth and richness makes this 2003 Merlot drinkable now but it could easily age if you can wait. Please enjoy our 2003 Merlot with family and friends.
