Product Overview

This 2002 Merlot was aged for 18 months in new Taransaud barrels resulting in a dark purple merlot. Bouquets of creamy fudge, plum, salted caramel with a hint of smoke lends an intensity of depth and complexity to this world class merlot.

Winemaker's Notes: "...Its dark purple color is followed by a lovely bouquet of fudge, caramel, black cherries, plums, and smoke. Full-bodied, opulent, and rich, it is one of the finest Merlots made in California. The deep, rich 2002 Merlot is not up to the level of the 2003, although it does possess fabulously complex notes of scorched earth, chocolate, espresso roast, and meaty black cherries, currants, and plums. A broodingly backward, concentrated, full-bodied, dense, and super-rich Merlot, it should drink well for 15 or more years."
