The 2008 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.
About the Blend:
With The Rolling Stones Forty Licks blasting in the cellar, our Winemaker crafted this custom Merlot from premium Mendocino County fruit, blending a one-of-a-kind wine with Rock 'n Roll mythology. To capture the essence of Forty Licks, the 40 tracks that cover the Rolling Stone's career, Winemaker Mark Beaman chose
to work with Merlot. This varietal captures the comfort of turning to a solid classic that stands the test of time. Much like the band itself, Mendocino County winemaking stays true to its roots with a consistent and confident character not caught up in fads or trends.
