The 2008 LampLighter California Merlot offers a classic merlot profile of bright cherries, ripe plums, red currants and vanilla oak with hints of cassis and spice on the finish. A touch of cabernet franc enhances the berry flavors while keeping the tannins elegant and the mouth feel balanced. This is an incredibly enjoyable Merlot delivering a classic California fruit forwardness with a sophisticated and well-layered character not found in wines at this price.
