Production Notes
This inaugural vintage of Colterris Merlot sets the bar high! An intensely fruit forward wine, broadly structured with a complex lingering richness. The Riverside Vineyard Merlot blocks provided most of the fruit and the majority of the tannins. Theresa’s Vineyard Merlot was a softer and rounder wine, which added nice mid-palate fruit flavors. The addition of Malbec helped drive a rich fruitiness and softened some of the tannin from the Riverside blocks.
Winemaker Notes
Exceptionally dark in color and profoundly extracted. Up front rich aromas of blueberries and rose petals. Balanced tannins are coupled with a soft and silky richness in the finish. This wine goes particularly well with boldly flavored foods...grilled steak, roasted chicken and pork, BBQ ribs, aged cheddar and blue cheeses, tomato-based and red-fruit sauces.
