Product Description:

"Our aim is to capture the signature velvety fruit character of Merlot while showcasing the fine structure inherent to Margarita Vineyard. For the second straight year, the Santa Margarita Ranch AVA enjoyed ideal growing conditions through harvest, yielding ripe Merlot fruit with intensity and structure. After destemming, the lots were cold soaked for 48 hours prior to fermentation for a gentle extraction of initial color and flavor. After fermentation and light pressing, the lots were aged for 17 months in a combination of French (70%) and American (30%) oak barrels, 25 percent of which featured new oak. A small lot of Cabernet Franc from Margarita Vineyard was incorporated into the final blend for added complexity, including floral aromatics and notes of spice." -Winery
