Dark chocolate flavours in the mouth, with a supple medium weight tannin finish. Being fruit off an older vineyard block has helped add complexity to this early-drinking style. The Farm Series Merlot is made with fruit taken from the Robert Stein Merlot block, planted back in 1989. Fermented on skins for 5 days to help highlight the great regional and varietal characters. The wine is matured in oak for 6 months.
