2012 was an amazing year in the vineyard with the early bud break ( April 27) and good early hear followed by a long growing season. The grapes for this single vineyard Merlot were grown on our estate vineyard, River Rock Vineyards,
A nice straight Merlot offering some lifted wood spice, charcoal and red currants. The palate is charming, giving up graphite, cherry and spearmint. Good value here, drink over the next couple years. ~ Brad Royale WineAlign August 2015

Soft and mellow as any tannins have faded. But still fresh and fruity. A very pleasant sip.
