This is your opportunity to drink an aged and cellared large format Merlot! Only 24 bottles available!  No additional discounts available due to limited quantity.


The 2003 Wetzel Family Estate Merlot offers classic cassis and black cherry flavors and soft, ripe tannins. Aromas of blackberry and cassis fill the glass with nuances of vanilla and cedar. On the palate this wine is deeply flavored with a hefty core of fruit. Black and red fruit appear initially, followed by an integrated acid balance and velvety tannins.

Please note:  Library wines are older bottles and may have some scuffs/marks on labels and/or capsules due to the age of the bottles.
