Taking center stage are aromas of cassis, spiced plum, dark chocolate and coffee. Sharing the spotlight are flavors of dried blueberry and vanilla with an aside of dark mulberry. Smooth and supple through both acts, the long finish is the standing ovation on this wine.

Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
We have just over 2 acres of Merlot growing on the 2 Lads farm. 3/4 of an acre were planted in 2001 on a higher site just above the winery building. We added 1.4 acres of Merlot to the western side of the vineyard as part of our 2008 vineyard expansion.
Production Notes
Grapes were crushed, destemmed, then divided into three different containers for fermentation, each of which was inoculated with a different yeast strain to begin fermentation. Following the completion of fermentation the free run and pressed portions were separated into different barrels for 12 months of aging and full malolactic fermentation.

Go-to-wine for when friends that appreciate a good red. I break this bottle out and they are amazed on how good it is. Not all Merlot's are created the same!!
