2009 Champoux Vineyard Merlot
The 2009 Champoux Vineyard Merlot is young, yet shows incredible promise with age. Aromas of blueberry, cranberry, dried herbs and a slight note of vanilla rise from the glass. The palate is intense and plush with soft tannins and added notes of dark cherry, violets and sun dried tomatoes. The 2009 vintage was aged for 22 months in 80% New French Oak. Drink now through 2018.
