Terra Savia Merlot

2013

  • Hopland, California

100% Merlot

Tasting Notes: An excellent value in California Merlot, it is bold and rich with dark fruit influence, soft but present tannins achieved through extended skin contact, and great backbone and structure with a pleasant food-friendly acidity. Produced in a soft rich style, this Merlot is dark and complex with aromas of black cherry and bittersweet cocoa. Aged in French oak for 24 months.

Forget about what that guy said in "Sideways", Merlot is good, and they have some medals to prove it. This vintage is especially fruity and velvety a Mendocino County Merlot should be.

Aging: French oak for 24 months.

Alcohol Percentage: 13.24%
