Dégustation


Dark garnet and reddish in color, this 2010 is very much so reflective of a California Merlot. Aromatically speaking this wine combines black cherries, black tea, coconut, toffee, and light oak. The palate is rich, soft and approachable with layers of dark cherry, ripe fruit and lingering tea-like flavors. Balanced, elegant and fruit forward yet not overly ripe, this is exactly what we look for in Sonoma County Merlot. Enjoy this wine alongside a wide array of dishes, including pasta primavera, salami, grilled steak and herb-crusted lamb chops.

Vinification

After a three-day cold soak, we crushed and fermented the fruit at relatively warm temperatures—for maximum extraction—in stainless steel tanks for 10-15 days. Early blending helped integrate and balance the wine’s aromatics and flavors. Nineteen months of maturation in a combination of Canton-American, Hungarian and Oregonian oak barrels brought additional structure and complexity to this Merlot.
