Viticulture

Three exceptional Merlot vineyard sites were chosen for this wine; Coquina (organic), Hinterland (organic), and Pomar Junction (SIP certified)

Vinification

100% de-stemmed the fruit 100%. Grapes were then fermented in stainless steel tanks with native yeast, and were given one pump-over daily during fermentation. The grapes were pressed and sent to barrels after 3 weeks on the skins, allowing malolactic fermentation to occur naturally.

The barrels chosen to age this Merlot were 5% new American oak and 95% neutral oak.

Tasting notes

Back from the dead, this Merlot has a classic claret character. Black tea, northland blueberries and wet concrete. The silky texture slides gracefully across the palate leaving behind hints of sweet plums, warm cedar planks, and freshly ground spices.
