With just 0.99 acres planted on our Dr. Crane Vineyard, we only make Merlot in selected exceptional vintages when the wine warrants a special bottling. Aromas boast of bing cherry, raspberry, and dried rose petal upon entry. Medium bodied and velvety in texture, refined tannins finish with a slightly chalky character, featuring hints of cola and spearmint. This Merlot was very lightly fined and bottled unfiltered.
