Product Description:

"The wine is 100% Merlot from the historic Red Hen Vineyard nestled into the crook of Dry Creek on rocky soil. The wine has the richness and aromatic profile of Merlot, with impeccable balance and elegance. The vineyard always gives intense cherry and chocolate aromas, and is balanced by notes of tea and earth. 2012 was a mild year, so the wine is softer than normal, more luscious in the mouth, with beautiful complex fruitiness.

Since 2003 we've been farming the Merlot vines in the Red Hen Vineyard, in the Oak Knoll district, and they are naturally small berried and early ripening. The stress results in extremely low yields, barely making over a ton per acre of intense and concentrated fruit." -Winery
