In the early 90's, Paul and Merrill had the opportunity to study winemaking in Bordeaux, France. They studied in the morning and visited wineries in the afternoon. In St. Emillon they experienced the velvety Merlots that came to be the signature of this Merlot. It won "Best of Show" at the New Orleans Wine & Food and Gold medal in California.
A rich blend of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, this full-bodied wine is aged in European oak and American oak. This wine embodies wonderfully integrated fruit and oak with rich cherry-vanilla and violet flavors. Made in a classic Bordeaux style it nicely complements grilled meats, game, and spicy sauces. These grapes were grown in our High Plains vineyards.
It won "Best of Show" at the New Orleans Wine & Food Extravaganza and gold medals at the Lone Star International Wine Competition and Grapefest's People's Tasting Classic.
Serve at 65 degrees F.
