Good things take time, and our wine is no exception. Our Merlot requires at least 2-3 years to mature to perfection. We recommend to let wine breathe or decanter before consumption.

"Merlot dominant wines are notable for their purity of fruit expression, these blends are exciting and approachable when enjoyed young, but are also worth holding onto, as they acquire complexity with age"
