Winemaker Notes

Dark red in the glass, our 2017 Alexander Valley Merlot is rich, displaying bold dark berry and cherry aromas followed by a savory background. French vanilla and rich chocolate notes fill the nose.

Production Notes

After a three-day cold soak, we crushed and fermented the grapes in stainless steel tanks. After pressing, each lot was blended or egg-white fined depending on flavor, color and tannin concentration. The wine was aged for 18 months in 30% new French oak barrels.
