Winemaker's Notes:

The 2009 Blackstone Sonoma Reserve Merlot is full of ripe flavors and soft round textures with notes of black cherry, plum, cedar spice, and toasty oak. Oak aging contributes toasty spice and vanilla overtones and plenty of smooth weight to the wine.

Blend: 90% Merlot, 5% Syrah, 5% Malbec

My Notes:

About Blackstone Winery:

Sonoma County has always been Blackstone's home and inspiration. Since our beginning we’ve established a reputation for consistently delivering balanced, reliable wines of uncompromising quality

From the start, our goal has been to produce smooth, flavorful, harmonious wines with rich fruit, supple texture, and balanced oak. Early on, this approach found its ideal expression in our Merlot, which soon became — and still remains — America's favorite Merlot.
