Merlot is a staple in the red wine lover community. Merlot grapes do not grow in our high humid climate of Louisiana so naturally we looked to the American West Coast to bring in the best Merlot grapes for us to age.


This is a 2012 vintage, barrel aged for 415 days in our cellar in a blend of French and American oak barrels, including only 12.5% new wood/barrels. The wood character is gentle with vanilla while the extended aging time of tight grain white oak has provided a smooth gentle fruit finish.
