Buccella Merlot
United States - California - Napa Valley

Our Merlot fruit comes from two blocks atop a knoll in the famed Hyde Vineyard, where harvests typically yield less than two tons per acre. It’s a youthful wine that’s invitingly approachable, while still offering the richness and decadence we love.

Buccella Merlot is graceful and layered. Aromas of rhubarb, raspberry jam and ripe plum jump out of the glass and mingle with hints of baking spice, clove and vanilla bean. An alluring mid palate is balanced by sweet red fruit and a delectable savory finish. Soft, plush, juicy tannins create a textured palate, which keeps you yearning for another sip. A welcoming vibrancy is retained allowing for this wine to be incredibly inviting. Accessible upon release and for those with the patience to bottle age, they will be rewarded well into the future.
