Our 100% Merlot comes from a beautifully maintained sustainably farmed vineyard in Lodi which is near Sacramento.
Extended maceration was used to add depth, structure and complexity to the wine. The red fermentation tanks are specially designed to give winemakers complete control of the fermentation and rate of extraction. Forty percent of our blend spent a year in a combination of American and French oak barrels.
Our 2011 Merlot is full of fresh, bright aromas and flavors of blackberries, cherries and herbs. It is round, rich and ripe with soft tannins. An ideal pairing with grilled or smoked meats, burgers and pastas.
