About This Item

District Winery's first red grapes sourced from Virginia! Virginia's climate lends this 100% Merlot an Old World character leaning stylistically toward the merlots of Bordeaux's Right Bank, where elegance and minerality balance bold, juicy fruit.

Winemaker's Tasting Notes

Light pepper aromas jump out along with turkish delight and fruit cake. Savory and earthy on the palate, mixing blackberry and raspberry with touches of tomato leaf and warm vanilla. Moderately firm in structure with a touch of lifting acidity and balanced tannin on the finish.
