Alhona Vineyards first vintage is selected from a small block of vineyard in the Cachagua area of Carmel Valley. Soft and approachable with a lovely bouquet, this Merlot is rich in savory fruit, depth and color. Although ready to enjoy now, this wine will age beautifully in your cellar.
This 2004 Carmel Valley Merlot is a big black wine, with black cherry aromas that lead to bold flavors of cassis, plum, blackberry, and hints of chocolate. It exhibits good select tannins on the palate, yet it has a soft and accessible, silky smooth finish.
