Tasting Notes:
We have slightly less than an acre of Merlot planted in just the perfect spot in our vineyard. So perfect that we are unable to expand on the planting. It is planted at the lowest section of our vineyard wheere the soil is deepes because it benefits from the erosion from the rest of our hillside vineyard. We employ a devicit irrigation philosophy (using spars irrigation during the growing season) which keeps the berries in the clusters very small. The lack of excess water in the grape enables us to craft a wine that is robust in flavor and color. Also, by not fully irrigating the vineyard, the roots of the Merlot vines dig deep looking for water giving the vines more character and flavor layers for Alex to do his magic.

Blend: 100% Merlot

Drink: November - 2027
