2005 Cedergreen Thuja Merlot-Cabernet Blend

TASTING NOTES

The aroma of this blend of 80% Merlot and
20% Cabernet Sauvignon entices the nose
with notes of black cherries and berries, toast
and bright jam. A new component from the
Red Mountain AVA, Klipsun Vineyard Merlot
contributes depth and grip to this blend. As
with many fine wines, Thuja will benefit with
decanting 1-3 hours prior to serving.
