Named after Reason P. Tucker, who lead the efforts to rescuer the survivors of the ill fated Donner Party and who also built the farmhouse in 1859 on what is now Canard Vineyard. We pay homage to Pomerol with this Merlot driven proprietary blend. It shows star anise, crushed clove, dried sage and black cherry on the nose. Ultra fat mid palate yields to a silky smooth finish of cinnamon toast, fresh blueberries and coffee that will stay with you for a long time. Aged in French oak to create a longterm, age-worthy blend, this wine will cellar very well for 10+ years.
