Vintage: 2011
Appellation: Lodi, California
Varietal Blend: Merlot, Syrah, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon

Tasting Notes:
In the glass: This wine has a fine, bright garnet-red color with a semi-translucent firm core going out into a light garnet rim definition with medium viscosity. On the nose: There is a lovely scent of raspberries, red cherries and cranberry fruit emanating from the bowl with light hints of smoked wood, allspice and spicy character underlying, then just touches of fruit-driven minerality and toast.

On the palate: The wine is a rounded and mellow version of what one could expect in a Merlot, pleasantly fruity with lots of crushed cranberry and cherry, raspberry coulis and touches of currants. The mid-palate is where the smoke and wood come out and integrate nicely with the fruit, leading to a most pleasant finish that lingers.
