We concur with The International Wine Cellar that this wine is the best Merlot our estate has produced to date.
With the advent of this predominantly Champoux Merlot, we have decided to exclusively source all our Merlot from this exceptional vineyard.
It demonstrates wonderful classic varietal charactistics with highly aromatic nuances of cherry pie, blueberry, chocolate, vanilla, spice and minerals.
