Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Our 2016 Central Coast Merlot has rich aromas of plum and raspberry with notes of blue fruit, clove, and cooking spice. Bright red and black fruit flavors lead to full approachable tannins, a balanced acidity, and a long finish. 90% Merlot, 6% Tempranillo,4% Petite Verdot
Production Notes
The 2016 season brought a cold winter and warm spring, which led to a good fruit set and ample ripening. This created increased complexity and depth in the resulting wines
Winemaker Notes
All vineyard lots were harvested at night and delivered to the winery in the early morning hours. The grapes were harvested at 24°-26° Brix to create rich, dark fruit flavors with complex tannins. Lots were destemmed to open-top fermenters, where they cold soaked for 48 hours before inoculation. During fermentation, pump-overs occurred twice daily to facilitate gentle extraction. After fermentation, the wine was put down to barrels and inoculated.
Food Pairing Notes
This wine pairs perfectly with roasted fennel and pork tenderloin and grilled portabella mushrooms.
