It is a pure Merlot that owes its name to a small stream that flows near the property. When Rita and Virgil took two Merlot barriques out of production in 1994, they probably didn't think they had created what would become an international cult-wine. From those vineyards planted in 1988, in the heart of the company on a slight slope, was born an exceptional fruit. Their position, the composition of the soil and the microclimate in their combination had given rise to this unique wine.
Intense ruby red.
A triumph of spicy and fruity aromas (black pepper, oriental spices, dark berries), wonderfully accompanied by aromas of cocoa beans, tamarind and toasted.
The taste is generous, pounding, with magnificent balance and persistence, with a very elegant tannic texture with notes of tobacco and licorice.

From this winery:
Purchased in 1984, the company is family owned, it stems from Rita and Virgil to retire to a quiet place to spend their retirement years cultivating the land, their passion. And it was this enthusiasm to push them to focus their energies and means ...
