Product description
The Kiona Estate vineyard is the oldest on Red Mountain. They have 4 distinct blocks of Merlot here, the first was planted in 1976, the youngest in 1995. While these components obviously have much more in common than not, they continue to surprise, even after several decades of experience. All four blocks are included in the blend, along with components from their younger Heart of the Hill planting that has garnered a lot of attention in a short period of time.

Merlot from Red Mountain is special. Here it's a powerful yet elegant grape, capable of producing wines of profound depth and density of character. A gentle oak regimen that employs primarily 2nd-fill barrels ensures abundant fruit and geographical specificity are preserved in the finished wine.
