The Diamond Dust Vineyard lies just south of the town of Geyserville in the renowned Alexander Valley wine region. Its old, low vigor vines consistently produce merlot with more power and depth than typically found in the appellation. Stylistically, Nick strives for full body and power in the mouth with wood behind the fruit. TRIG POINT Alexander Valley Merlot shows fresh black raspberry, cedar, and toasty vanilla aromas, with cherry, black currant, and spice flavors. Drink now through 2014.
