Winemaker Notes

This merlot manages to pack some flavor tension with its seeming contradictions: the wine is sofy yet firmly stated, the cherry flavors both rusty red and sour while chocolately and liqueur-like. The lasting chalky tannin never quite overtakes the longer-lasting red fruit. It's a substantial wine from young vines; enjoy its evolution over the next several years. (1,000 cases)

Rocking Horse, California
Established in 1989, Rocking Horse is a small quality producer of ultra premium red wines. It was proprietors Jeff and Nancy Doran’s desire to produce the absolute best wines from legendary growing regions. That quest quietly led them from a backyard bottling line, producing a limited 600 cases, to their current 8,000 case production level. Early in the building years a conscious decision was made to purchase fruit from growers and let them do what they do best. Extreme care is taken to marry the proper vineyard site and appellation with the appropriate varietals.

Trademark wines are typically “made in the vineyard” and picked at optimum ripeness to ensure a silky full mouth feel and dark crimson purple hue. Each wine is true to its varietal character and offers many layers of complexity. The name Rocking Horse was developed over time from an in-house collection of art, a sense of belonging and a playful reminder of dreams come true. Memorable in nature yet understated by design, the name touches the heart of Americana and lingers on... well after the evening’s wonderful meal.
