Merlot is back & stayin' alive! We love Merlot and made ours reminiscent of an early California style. The grapes come from an old planting on 1 acre at about 1600' elevation in the Templeton Gap. Our Merlot is soft & elegant with a juicy plushness. Light dusty tannins with rose petal potpourri, cedar & vanilla notes. Will age well for the next 5-7 years.
