The aromas here are rich and pure, built on a core of ripe red cherries and delicately framed with sophisticated notes of crushed gravel, spicy oak, and vineyard dust.  The impression on the palate is remarkably lush and sumptuous, with darker fruit that brings to mind deliciously sweet black cherries.  There’s gorgeous weight and presence here, and the structure is classic Rocca Merlot: rich and full-bodied, with ample but beautifully polished tannins that convey a distinct sense of finesse and refinement.  Our Grigsby Vineyard’s lively acidity keeps the long, pure finish precise and focused, with there’s a lovely closing flourish of stony minerality.
