Sonoma County Merlot with aromas of dark fruit and spice. Flavours of black cherry, ripe plum, and a dusting of dark chocolate carry through the palate. Velvety tannins give this Merlot a smooth, polished finish. If you get a chance find my ‘must see’ wine movie Sideways it will enhance the whole experience....so funny!
USA WINE REVIEW
Handpicked fruit for this Merlot was sourced specifically from areas in Sonoma County that elicit the ultimate expression of full fruit and velvety texture, while maintaining varietal integrity. In the winery they used a variety of techniques to maximize flavour intensity and retain bright fruit flavours while managing tannin levels, including cold soaking, pump over, and varying fermentation lengths and temperatures. The wine was aged in French and American oak for 16 months.
