Only 11 barrels of this lovely Merlot was produced. The 2018 Reason Vineyard Merlot exhibits a dark purple core with a moderate purple rim. The nose has big black plum, red cherry and red licorice with lighter elements of cinnamon and caramel. The wine is so soft and silky on the palate where ripper blueberry pie, brown sugar and cherry compote appear. The tannins are soft and round complemented by some fresh acidity. There is a long finish to this wine which will age wonderfully over the next 8-9 years. Aged 22 months in French Oak.
