"The warm, sun-filled afternoons and cool nights of dry creek valley foster the ripe flavors and plush tannins that we love in our merlot grapes. . Our dry creek valley merlot has aromas and flavors of red licorice and blackberry that meld with hints of toasted oak, milk chocolate and roasted coffee."

"For our Dry Creek Valley Merlot, we crushed the Merlot grapes together with Petite Sirah to achieve dark fruit flavors and enhance the tannic structure in the wine. The grapes were cold soaked to extract vivid color and flavor. The wine underwent malolactic fermentation and was aged on fine lees to soften the mouthfeel. Our Merlot was aged for seven months in a combination of French and American oak barrels to impart notes of chocolate and vanilla in the finished wine."
