The fruit for this Merlot comes from several vineyard blocks on Firestone's estate, each with a unique soil structure, trellising style and microclimate. It is this diversity that allows them to create such an exceptional final wine. Garnet in color, aromas of ripe dark plum and cherry lead into the palate of raspberry, clove and nutmeg. A hint of vanilla and cocoa mingle pleasantly with structured tannins on the long finish.
