The 2012 Merriman Estate was made in only two barrels and shows the intense flavors that only the higher elevations of our vineyard can produce. You'll find sweet, oakey aromas with hints of cola and Indian spruce.
The front palate shows an initial red current and plum flavor, giving way to black fruits and a mid to end palate surge of the acids that made this vintage unique. Aromas of cola nut, cinnamon toast and wet underbrush persist throughout.

Wine Making Notes:

Grown at the highest elevation in our vineyard, these two blocks planted with Pommard and Wadenswil clones were allowed the longest hang time during the ripening phase of an especially warm growing season. The berries were hand sorted block by block, and only the more perfect berries allowed through to fermentation. Cold soaked for twenty days, the free run juice is bled off into the Rosé. New French oak from the Vosges and Allier forests are used to age the wine, giving it a fuller, silky palate.
