The Vice Merlot, Keith's Batch #007, Mount Veeder, 2017


“Our first Merlot batch is dedicated to Keith. A lifelong Napa Cabernet Sauvignon enthusiast and a living James Bond. We meticulously crafted this complex and distinctive Merlot in a traditional Bordeaux style displaying qualities more in common with small-batch Cabernet than with the lush Merlot of the movies...”

Batch #007 politely greets the nose with aromas authentic to an age worthy classic Bordeaux. On the palate, red fruits first tingle the tongue; then immediately layers of blackberries, plum, cedar and spice attack the mid-palette. Soft tannins disguise this wine like a spy, yet the finish is long, complex and well structured.
