The 2018 Acre Merlot is a deep purple-tinged ruby in color. From the first pour, it opens up with enticingly bold aromas of summer fruit, including black cherries, ripe strawberries, and dark plums, which carry over subtly in the mouth. On the palate, the bright acidity and textured tannins support layers of spice, dried herbs, cocoa beans, leather, and cedar, which lead to a lengthy, complex finish that takes its time to unfold. While the 2018 Merlot drinks beautifully in its youth, the robust structure also makes it a perfect candidate for cellaring.

Earthy and tart, this 100% varietal red was aged 14 months in French oak, 60% of it new. Taut in leathery texture, it develops an easygoing approachability and softness as it opens, finishing in dried herb and clove.

A juicy, delicious red, the 2018 Merlot has lots of raspberry and blueberry fruits as well as spice, vanilla, and incense-like aromas and flavors. Medium-bodied, rounded, and supple on the palate, it's about as drinkable as they come.

Made from 100% Merlot, the medium to deep garnet-purple colored 2018 Merlot rolls out of the glass with easy-breezy scents of baked plums, warm black cherries and blackberry tart plus suggestions of tobacco leaf and spice box. Medium-bodied, the palate delivers plenty of uncomplicated juicy black fruit flavors with a pleasant chewiness to the texture and bags of freshness, finishing with a spicy kick.

The 2018 Merlot is a thin, weedy offering with only modest depth and complexity. There is just enough fruit to balance strong floral and savory signatures, and that leaves the wine feeling light.
