Winemaker Notes
"Celebrate the versatility of this lovely blend of small Merlot blocks from our mountain and valley estates. Bright and youthful, the nose is full of Bing cherries, fresh plum and a hint of raspberry leaf. On the more savory side, touches of almond, peppercorn and lightly toasted French oak enhance a palate balanced with acidity and long round tannins." - Justin Carr
Vineyard Notes
An early bud break, wet spring soils, and a long growing season produced a vintage with excellent quality. A wet spring started fast and rapid growth was met with average summer temperatures, which slowed development and reduced yields. The result was a moderate crop of well-concentrated fruit that ripened fully and slowly before an early harvest.
Food Pairing Notes
LMR grass-fed beef, smoked baby back ribs, or with barbecued pulled pork sandwiches.
