Our 2013 Sonoma County Merlot is lush with predominate notes of blackberries, black cherry and plum with a hint of dried herbs. This wine is silky and voluptuous with soft tannins and finishes with a touch of dried cocoa and vanilla. The luscious dark fruit flavors are enhanced by aging in small French and American oak barrels.
Enjoy this Merlot over the next two to four years with grilled vegetables, spaghetti and meatballs or grilled Italian-style sausages.
2013 was the kind of growing season that most would wish we could have every year; a dry, frost-free spring, a warm summer without heat spikes, and a warm rain free autumn that allowed for picking the grapes perfectly mature. Warm days with cool evenings prevailed in September which kept sugar accumulation at an even pace and allowed acidity to remain in the fruit. We harvested the Merlot to make this wine in September and October under ideal conditions.
