Black cherry and chocolate aromas are layered with vanilla, briars and smoke
The fleshy texture is harmonious with plum and raspberry flavors
Vineyards in the ”heartland” of California gives our Merlot plenty of ripe cherry character. Careful canopy management is key to farming in the Lodi, Sacramento Delta and San Joaquin areas.
Cool nighttime temperatures were the hallmark of this vintage, allowing our red varietals to maintain perfect acid structure in conjunction with extended ripening time, concentrating optimal flavors in the small berries.
This wine is great to enjoy with burgers on the grill.
