Our Merlot displays bright, ripe black cherry and plum aromas with subtle notes of spice and chocolate.
We barrel fermented 60% of this wine, and aged that portion in barrel for eight months, offering the wine a touch of brown spice and vanilla, while cold fermenting the remainder to maximize a fresh fruit-forward character. Bright lemon and apple aromas mingle with hints of toasty barrel complexity, and on the palate, pear and pineapple with spice and refreshing acidity will have you coming back for another glass. Enjoy this lively chardonnay now and over the next couple of years.
This wine takes you on a tour of the best Chardonnay regions of Sonoma County: the Russian River Valley, Alexander Valley, Carneros and Sonoma Coast.
