Today our family is blending time-honored methods with innovative winemaking and has become one of the world's most award winning wineries. Three Time Winery of the Year (1996, 1998, 2001): San Francisco International Wine Competition. Three Time International Winery of the Year (1998, 2001, 2002): Vinitaly International Wine Competition. Our Sonoma County Merlot showcases the softer, fuller and richer side of Merlot. The aromas are warm and inviting with hints of crushed berries, vanilla and spice. These enticing aromas are followed by dark and deep flavors of blackberry pie, wild berries and jam, with a lush, round mouthfeel. We're sure you will enjoy our wine as much as we've enjoyed making it. Alc. 13.9% by vol.
