ORIGIN
This Merlot is harvested from select vineyards in
California whose topography, soils, and climate
provide optimal grape-growing conditions to
develop ripe, round fruit flavors.
FERMENTATION
The grapes were gently pressed and fermented
in upright stainless steel containers. Rack and
return, which is the process of draining all of the
free-run juice off the cap and then returning the
free-run juice back over the top of the fermenter,
was performed twice daily.
AGING
The wine was aged for 12 months in American,
French and Eastern European oak barrels.
DESCRIPTION
Perfectly ripe and juicy, like summer plums
and cherries.
