Our 2015 Merlot offers incredibly expressive aromas of strawberry, blueberry and plum.
A round, luscious palate full of bright berry and lollipop fruit notes. The finish is lengthy yet integrated, with plenty of tannin that is rich, ripe and velvety on the palate.
77% Napa 23% Sonoma
Vineyard selections of Clone 3 and Clone 181 merlot were harvested throughout late September and early October,
Bottled: April 2017
Fermented in stainless steel vats. To the base blend, we added 12% cabernet sauvignon to bring structure and 0.1% petit verdot (because we love our petit verdot and we love to get finicky in our blending process).
Aged in French oak barrels (40% new) as separate wine lots for 14 months prior to blending.
