Merlot 2013


This product has sold out.




A ruby red gemstone colour with an abundance of black cherry, raspberries and currants on the nose with a touch of smokiness.  The palate is all encompassing with cherry, plum and currants.  The silkiness and velvety finish clings to your palate and just won’t let go.  You had me at Merlot!

Food Pairing: Lamb, Prime Rib, Aged Cheddar

Technical Notes:

Thoughts steeped in the fascination of architecture. So it is with our many levels of Merlot. There comes a great satisfaction in seeing what your mind perceives become reality. The great architects like Leonardo di Vinci had vision to dream and create what others said would not be possible. Our Merlot has that same complexity that attracted me to its character.

The Label:

Nicolas Colaneri loves to create images and drawings and see them come to fruition.
He has been perceived as contemplating over the drawings he has before him with the model in his hand.
There is a great sense of accomplishment that comes from envisioning a project and building it with your own
hands. There is a wine glass in the background filled with Merlot for inspiration. He has an admiration for the
“Wolverine” character so our designer gave him a “wolverine” beard. The trademark claw marks on the wall
behind him show how he lets out his frustrations.
