2016 Estate Merlot
While Merlot accounts for only 3.75% of our total planted acreage, it has claimed a much larger piece of our hearts! With only 1.28 acres producing this remarkable grape, this wine is sure to remain highly allocated.
This 2015 vintage of Merlot is a perfect example of why the Happy Canyon region produces some of the most beautiful and complex Bordeaux varietals in the world. Notes of black cherry and ripe plum are framed with traces of fresh herbs and dark chocolate on the palate. The finish is laced with well-rounded tannins which present an extraordinary expression of a warm-climat Merlot.
