100% Cole Ranch Merlot

 

We were fortunate to grab a little merlot from this historic vineyard before it is gone for good. This portion of the vineyard has since been replanted.  Using all native yeast, a portion was fermented carbonic in a sealed tank and the rest in a large open top French barrel.  Macerated for three week before pressing and aged in neutral french oak.  Wine was bottled in the spring to maintain its crips fruit character but then aged in bottle for six months before release to allow the tannins to soften. This wine shows why winemakers love the grape so much. Full of its signature dark chocolate, yet melded with plum and blueberry muffin and the inherent brightness of the vineyard, this wine is likely to make you sad that it will never be made again. (Sorry... we warned you in advance.)
