Winemaker's Notes

Underscoring our conviction that truly balanced and expressive Merlots can only be cultivate in cooler climates, we selected this variety for our estate vineyard in Carneros. Our hillside Merlot block possesses clay soils similar to those of Pomerol, the cornerstone Merlot appellation of Bordeaux. A moderate growing season in the North Coast coupled with an absence of rain, forged a silky, finely structured wine that will age gracefully into the next decade. A sparkling wine producer first and foremost, our winemaker at Gloria Ferrer has created this bottling of Merlot to showcase the fruit for which the Carneros region is famous.

For food and wine pairing we suggest roasted pork, grilled lamb and beef.
