The Santa Cruz Mountains Merlot is a spell woven into a glass, a story of aromas that transport us to a realm of enchantment.

Nose: Sublime aromatics waft from the glass, reminiscent of fresh plum, the cool breath of wintergreen, subtle whispers of graphite, and the faint memory of your finest linens, carefully stored in antique chest. It's a prelude to the sensory journey that awaits.

Palate: Luscious and impeccably balanced, this Merlot unfolds with ripples of cherry, a touch of unsweetened cacao, and the aroma of sun showers on-warmed soil. Each sip reconnects you with the oh-so forgotten beauty of this exquisite varietal. The tannins possess a texture akin to a perfect Asian pear—sandy and dreamy, a mouthwatering sensory delight.

When shared with winemaker friends, their most common comment is, "I want my Cabernet Sauvignon to taste like that (your Merlot)."

Finish: The finish is pure winter wizardry. The interplay of fruit and spice extends in an elegant, enchanting buzz, stretching from your palate to your fingertips. This wine is not merely to be savored; it's meant to be shared with friends, a revelation to delight and amaze.
