The fruit for this first release of Saviah Cellars Reserve Merlot was estate grown, handpicked, and handled with the greatest of care. The result is an opulent, stylish Merlot that is full of ripe, dark cherry aromas laced with hint of vanilla and nutmeg. This wine is pure silk in the mouth with juicy layers of perfectly extracted fruit which are enhanced by a touch of chocolate and nutmeg.
Truly a special wine meant to be shared.
