2006 Yates Flower
This Reserve Merlot was inspired by the floral fruit bouquet found on Mount Veeder. The perfume aromas and strong red berry flavors were a part of the inspiration behind the name "Flower." This wine truly takes your breath away like a perfect rose in a sea of roses. This elegant and smooth wine is a true expression of what a mountain grown Merlot should be.
18 Months 100% French Oak
After the winemaker’s strategic barrel selection, this wine is a Merlot for Cabernet lovers. An antique red brick color with an amethyst hue peaking through that has developed from extended bottle age on this Reserve Merlot. Crushed spicy herbs with a hint of boysenberry jam on the nose. Soft round tannins with a balanced acidity rounds out with a dark fruit palate that lingers with a long rich finish.
