    Winemaker Notes

    It is our custom to take the fruit that is lighter and less tannic and use it in our Shooting Star bottlings. Two of the vineyards that we get grapes from are located on the flanks of Mt. Konocti the long dormant volcano that dominates the skyline of Lake County. These red volcanic soils are perfect for grape growing. They drain well and are not too fertile and the exposures are wonderful. Our Shooting Star Merlot is made from grapes grown in the hillside Dorn family vineyard and the bench land vineyard of Floyd Silva. A Very fruity wine and, as Merlot should be, also very soft. We usually blend in a little Lake County Cabernet Sauvignon to give this Merlot just a pleasant touch of firmness in the finish and flavor in the middle. This wine has great aromas of raspberry, and the flavors are also berry like. We age the wine in older French and American oak barrels and bottle it 7-9 months after the harvest to capture as much of the aroma and flavor of the grape as possible. These are not wines which need to be cellared nor should they be. Enjoy with good spicy foods, grilled meats or sausages.
