Our 2013 Spellbound Merlot is approachable, yet deeply rich with berry and oak flavor, providing satisfaction with every glass. This Merlot was created to demonstrate the dark yet playful fruit profile of Merlot with its soft fruits and aromatics of mulling spice, fresh cedar cigar box and decadent leather. You will find bright fruit mingling with a classic signature of toasted Madagascar vanilla bean and French oak. Our dark, juicy, plush wine style continues here with soft tannins that gently caress while the brambly fruit and oak character manifest in every glass.
