Description:

This purple-hued, super elegant, certified organic bottling is comprised of 100% Merlot and hails from the Sierra Foothills in northern California. Merlot has gotten a bad rap in recent years, but this vibrant, delicate rendition is a wonderful reason to revisit this classic variety. A stream of fresh acidity brightens the palate here which features pretty blackberry, black plum and wild blueberry flavors. Only 254 cases were produced in total.

Description:

The fruit for this bright, native yeast-fermented Cabernet comes from Lloyd Vineyard in the southern end of Alexander Valley on the banks of the Russian River as well as from a steep knoll called Trieb Vineyard in the more northern reaches of the Alexander Valley. A touch of Malbec from the J Rickards Vineyard in Cloverdale was incorporated into the blend as well, yielding a deeply concentrated wine teeming with cassis, blackberry and black cherry fruit. This wine was aged in neutral French oak for 15 months.
