Production Notes
2016 Riverside Vineyard Merlot is the first wine in our Estate Selection lineup. With our Estate Selections, we seek to capture “best of vintage” wines and Riverside Merlot was truly a gem. This wine is composed of 80% Clone 3 Merlot from the Eastern portion of the block and 20% of an unknown clone from the Western portion of the vineyard; the combination yields a truly spectacular example of Merlot from just under 4 acres of vines.
Winemaker Notes
This vineyard designate Merlot opens in the glass with an enticing balance of raspberry jam, dark chocolate and spicy oak notes. On the palate, the wine displays roundness and juicy fruit character. As the wine moves along the palate, lush tannins show themselves leading to an elegant and still fruitful finish.
