Harvest of our three estate vineyard blocks of Merlot began on Oct. 11 2016. Blocks were harvested individually, broken into small batches, cold soaked on the skins for 4 days and fermented for an additional 21 days on the skins in tank with twice daily pump overs. The resulting individual wines were aged for 18 months in 30% new French oak and blended prior to being bottled, unfiltered.
Dark berries, ripe plum, red licorice and cherry on the nose. The palate shows more of the spice character with the addition of cloves, nutmeg and chocolate. Grippy tannin structure and fresh acidity show off the aging potential of this layered and structured wine.
