Winemaker's Notes
86% Merlot, 9% Syrah, and 5% Petite Sirah

Our 2010 Merlot is the star of the vintage. The fruit was very late to ripen, but that is the case in the best European vintages also. Big, rich color. Full blackberry, currant, and plum nose. The flavors are in the dark fruit range. Full tannin and rich, supple mouth are very lush. Big and bold with lots of smoky, toasty oak. Long and lingering finish. In crafting this wine, we chose exceptional Central Coast grapes, primarily from Monterey County, a region that provides the temperate climate, cool breezes, and moist alluvial soils that Merlot loves. We blended the Merlot with 5% Petite Sirah for added color and richness and enhanced the wine’s pure fruit flavors with just a hint of oak for roundness and complexity. Enjoy this wine with barbecued chicken, spaghetti bolognese, wild mushroom risotto, or a perfectly grilled burger.
