Carneros Merlot

Carneros Merlot bottle

The Merlot grapes were handpicked at night to preserve fruit character and were gently destemmed before a five day cold soak which increased color, fruit essence and structure. The must was then fermented in small, open-top fermenters using daily hand punch downs. The extended time on skins and hand punch downs helped to extract maximum color, flavor and intensity.

  • Nose

    Our Carneros Merlot opens with tempting aromas of blackberry and black cherry accented by nuanced notes of plum and a dash of cinnamon.

  • Palate

    On the palate, the fruit aromas develop into integrated flavors that are accompanied by elements of pomegranate and dark chocolate. Rich and complex, the wine culminates in a long, satisfying finish.
