2020 Estate Merlot

Delicate and refined, this Merlot opens with subtle aromas of rose petal and red cherry. Lingering hints of cinnamon and milk chocolate add depth and complexity. Flavors of candied cranberry and fresh strawberry carry through a palate highlighted by balanced acidity and mild tannins.

2020 Estate Merlot
Winemaker Notes
We have two distinctly unique blocks of Merlot at the RBZ vineyard. Block 5 produces a rich, fruity, lush wine, while block 4 is earthier and spicier. Aged in a light portion of new oak, we let the fruit shine and highlight the delicate flavors and aromas characteristic of the varietal. While they tend to ripen at about the same rate, we always ferment and age the wines separately, allowing us to arrive at the blending table with the freedom to craft each vintage of Merlot meticulously. 94% Merlot & 6% Cabernet Sauvignon
