A 1.5L Magnum of our 1999 Reserve Merlot. Enticing dark fruit aromas of blackberry, boysenberry and plum are given depth by notes of clove spice and mocha. The rich palate has layers of flavors varying from ripe black fruit to dusty, dark chocolate. The wine is well-structured with incredibly smooth tannins and a lush, mouth-filling texture.

Bottle Size: 1.5 L
Bottles in Case: 6

Tasting Note:

Complex cherry, chocolate and black fruit aromas jump from the nose of this Merlot. On the palate, black cherry, cedar and roasty tobacco lead to a full, round mouth with firm structure and elegance.
