Winemaker's Notes:

The 2011 Merlot captures the attitude of Mendocino County's style. Aromas of black cherry, with hints of mint are followed by rich flavors of plum, black cherry, brown sugar, cinnamon, and cedar. This dry red wine is a fine match for herb-roasted chicken, grilled beef or smoky chili.

Blend: 83% Merlot, 8% Petite Sirah, 5% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Petit Verdot, 1% Other Red

About Wines That Rock:

The founders of Wines That Rock have been at the forefront of bringing Rock 'n Roll to fans for decades. This new project was born out of two great passions, music and wine. The project's goal is the creation of great tasting wines inspired by the spirit of Classic Rock 'n Roll Music, iconic album art for labels, earth friendly production from the grape to the labels and great consumer value. With over 30 years of rock 'n roll experience, Wines That Rock founders intend to use their rock 'n roll expertise to promote, produce and market these one of a kind wines, no differently than they would a World Wide Tour of a major artist.
