2016 Estate Merlot, Hawley Vineyard 3L Double Magnum

GOLD - SF Chronicle Wine Competition

Merlot 76%, Cabernet Franc 24%

Tasting Notes

This Hawley Estate Merlot demonstrates that there is nothing wimpy about this varietal. Deep garnet color. Aromas of black cherries, dark chocolate and cranberry. A multitude of flavors on the palate including red fruit and candy apple with a touch of bay leaf, clove and spicy oak notes. This wine is rich in fruit with velvety tannins and that long fruity finish from our intense mountain grown fruit. Pure deliciousness!
