  • Outrageous! Our Merlot displays intense aromatics of blue and red berries, black fruits, roasted nuts and toasted oak. Medium to full-bodied, it shows a luxurious richness of sweet fruit flavors that is accompanied by a suppleness that shows in the mouth-feel.

    Wine Profile
    Production Notes
    The 2009 Merlot continues a long tradition of well-balanced wines for us with this varietal. One of the great aspects of growing this varietal in our Oak Knoll District region is that we can fully ripen the fruit while still maintaining ample acidity in the grapes at harvest. This is due to our unique location from which we can benefit from the warmth of the southern alley but also the cool bay breezes each afternoon. 18 Months in French Oak, 50% New.
    Winemaker Notes
    Our 2009 Estate Grown Merlot is a rich, well balanced wine. The aromas are full of berry fruits with nicely integrated lightly toasted oak aromas. The palate is very expressive and is displaying a wonderful balance. The roundness of the Merlot is balanced by its own acidity and also the nicely integrated tannin structure of the Cabernet Franc. The finish is long and full. Drink Now through 2021.
