Alexander Valley

Merlot

Appellation:

The Alexander Valley’s warm climate, marine-cooled evenings and well-drained, volcanic hillside soils translate to rich wines with smooth, well-structured tannins.

Winemaking:

Following harvest and fermentation, aging in a combination of French and American oak barrels showcases the bright, varietally expressive palate of this Merlot.

Tasting Notes:

Deliciously approachable with vibrant, ripe black cherry flavors, accented by notes of toasted caramel and vanilla, with smooth, well-structured tannins.
