2013 Merlot

The wine exhibits classic Merlot aromas of bright cherry, blackberry and raspberry, with hints of olives, anise and black pepper. In the mouth the wine is medium bodied with rich, firm tannins.

The Merlot for this wine was sourced from the heart of California’s Wine Country. In 2013 we got exceptional hang time and picked the fruit in late October. The wine fermented for a period of nearly a month before being pressed off into French Oak barrels. After 18 months in barrel the wine was bottled in May of 2015.

The wine exhibits classic Merlot aromas of bright cherry, blackberry and raspberry, with hints of olives, anise and black pepper. In the mouth the wine is medium bodied with rich, firm tannins. Aged in 30% new French oak barrels, the wine will continue to soften and gain complexity in the bottle with expected peak drinking window of 2018 to 2022.
