The Commodore Perry designation is given only to our most exceptional vintages. This 100% Merlot tastes of deep dark cherry, ripened fig and bay leaves ending in a long, chewy finish. In honour of our ancestor, Matthew Calbraith Perry who opened Japan to the West, we have designed a label portraying the "black ship" that arrived on Japan's shores in 1854. Hand crafted by Olive Perry Weiss, named after Matthew's brother, Oliver Hazard Perry, another famous U.S. Naval Officer and hero of the battle of Lake Erie, War of 1812.
