“Sometimes a Merlot can be too monolithic to be a good blending partner. For two vintages now I have gathered Merlots that fit this description, treated them gently during fermentation, and combined them to create a uniquely bold and expressive Merlot with luscious dynamic flavors and a smooth, weighty finish.” –Brian Mackey
