Monterey Merlot

Monterey Merlot bottle

The grapes for our Merlot were hand harvested during the middle of October. The wine underwent a three day cold soak with a three day fermentation that was followed by a three day extended maceration. The wine was then aged in 10% French oak (balance stainless steel) for 9 months.

The 2013 vintage—dry yet moderate in temperature—lifted many boats, not just in Napa Valley. This sleek Monterey merlot has a simple, pure ripeness, the fruit bright red and focused, with complex, savory aromas of cocoa and tobacco chiming in. It’s firm rather than fat, ready to take on flank steak.
