The wines are always highly allocated and snapped up by legions of loving admirers. The 2017 is their 40th Anniversary release, a blend of 80% Merlot, 16% Cabernet Sauvignon, 2.5% Cabernet Franc, 1% Petit Verdot and 0.5% Malbec aged in 100% French oak- 40% new.Wine Review Online scored this 92 points saying “This wine is an empire builder if ever there was one.

If you’re a true fan of Merlot, you know this wine…
