Winemaking Notes
This wine is a more feminine style compared to the Estate Merlot. It exhibits refined tannins with elegant flavors of blackberries, raspberries as well as distinct aromas of cardamom pod, cinnamon, dried herbs, crushed flowers, bay leaf, spice cake, cedar and semi-sweet fudge. Seven barrels of Merlot were selected for their unique characteristics to create our reserve blend we now call 7 Barrels.
We recommend drinking our Seven Barrels upon release though it will age well and continue to evolve for a decade or more.
Possessing refined tannins, elegant flavors of Blackberry and black plum, distinct aromas of violet, and aged 20 months in small French oak barrels, our Seven Barrels is the crown jewel of our cellar.
