A lively blend of Merlot from Aria and Firethorn Vineyards. It was aged in barrel for 17 months making it a vibrant, complex, and thought-provoking wine. With this visually deep and concentrated red we are greeted by aromas of bing cherry and ripe plum with notes of nutmeg, white pepper and sandalwood. The palate shows balance with flavors of cherries, plums and figs with notes of cacao, carob, Nocino Walnut Liqueur and Sumatran coffee beans. The full finish continues to show fruits and spice and closes with a delightful dryness. Pair our 2018 Merlot with grilled eggplant, lamb neck ragu with pappardelle, and duck confit.
