Our Carneros Merlot captures the distinctive, vibrant berry, rose and spice expression of the grapes grown in our vineyards in the Los Carneros American Viticultural Area. The enticing aromas and silky flavors are filled with bright raspberry and wild cherry character. Subtle nuances of sun-warmed red rose, spice and mocha and a hint of sweet smoke from oak barrels add complexity. Fine, integrated tannins softly structure the wine and carry the impression of crushed ripe berries through the lingering finish. Our Merlot makes an especially delicious pairing with lamb shish kebabs; steak; roast duck or turkey; grilled mushrooms and mellow, aged cheeses.
