Winemaker Notes
Though still displaying the complexity and structure for which our Merlots are known, this unique wine highlights a defining grace and refinement, with sophisticated aromatics and distinctive blueberry notes. It begins with exotic layers of Asian spice, red plum, chestnut, lavender and vanilla, before revealing a velvety texture, firm, ripe tannins and alluring flavors of blueberry, cherry, mocha and walnut.
The 2007 growing season began early and was unusually dry, with rainfall totals that were 50 percent below average. Cool spring weather continued into the summer with temperatures down by approximately 5 degrees from August through October. The cool, steady weather produced a long harvest spread out over 80 days. This relaxed pace allowed us to pick in multiple passes, ensuring ideal ripening and flavor development in the fruit.
