This medium-bodied Merlot delivers aromas of spice and blackberry with the perfect balance of earth, cocoa and ripe cherry notes on the palate. The complex flavors are followed by a smooth, velvety finish. Pair with Grilled Salmon, Roasted Lamb, Wild Game, and Balsamic or Tomato-Based Sauces.

The 2016 Merlot H3 is a pure expression of a Merlot that has a fresh and fruity nose, showing a mix of American and French oak aromas. Sweet vanilla and toasted coconut, Juicy red plum and dark cherries all can be tasted on the medium-bodied palate with soft floral flavors. Ending with a good, clean finish, the wine is easy-drinking and delivers well for the price.

Sleek and focused, with lively black cherry, toasted spice and herb flavors that finish with fine-grained tannins. Drink now through 2023.

Pitted dark cherry and vanilla aromas lead to light but creamy feeling fruit and barrel flavors. The oak plays a large part in the show, but it largely works.
