Additional Information

We prune our Merlot vines heavily and drop fruit several times during the growing season so the remaining clusters ripen evenly. Winemaker Kevin Hall has found that fermenting Merlot at a slightly lower temperature than some of our other Bordeaux varieties maintains the lush flavors and structure. After fermentation the lots spend 12 months aging in a combination of French and American oak barrels.

Tasting Notes

There are fresh fruit aromas of apple, pear, pineapple, and vanilla mixed with floral notes and slight oak in the glass. The 2017 is rich and full bodied with slight citrus notes along with fresh fruit flavors of pear, apple, tropical fruits and peaches. The Viognier adds a slight floral component and contributes to the rich mouth-feel. This vintage is well balanced and has a very long finish. If you are looking for classic California Chardonnay, then this is the wine to order by the case!
