Wine Review: This very dark purple Merlot opens with a spicy black cherry bouquet with notes of menthol detected as well. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, well balanced, smooth, and creamy. The flavor profile is an extracted black cherry. The finish is dry and its tingly tannins are noticeable and stick around. Pair this tasty Merlot with barbecue steak tips. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: A combination of savory lavender, cinnamon stick, and smoke aromas introduce this expressive mountain Merlot. Luscious flavors of blackberry, ripe cherry, and cacao are supported by an earthy core on the mid-palate. The 2006 Signature Merlot is texturally complex – displaying refined tannins, great depth and concentration of fruit.
