The 2008 Kimmel Merlot comes from the "Bench" area in our Hillside Vineyard from vines 19 years of age. One hundred percent Merlot, this wine is aged in both new- and used-French oak. It offers an exquisitely integrated nose of wild strawberry, raspberry, Bing cherry with touches of vanilla and spice. Notice warmth on the palate from the almost perfect growing season, finishing with a touch of fresh coffee, cinnamon and toffee.
