Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
An elegant Merlot showing a combination of dark and red fruits including plums, mulberries, and blueberries, with hints of vanilla following through. A medium-bodied wine that has a soft and smooth structure, with a juicy finish.
Vineyard Notes
Estate grown grapes from Dry Creek and Red Rock Vineyards
Winemaker Notes
Handcrafted with 100% estate grown grapes from both our Dry Creek Vineyard and Red Rock Vineyard. The grapes were hand-harvested and sorted before destemming and crush. A 2 day cold soak allowed for additional fruit extraction before starting fermentation. For colour and flavour extraction, pumpovers were done every 4 hours with fermentation temperatures increasing to 28 degrees for peak extraction. After the completion of fermentation, a 3 day post maceration was done on the skins for further colour and fine tannin extraction. Grapes were gently pressed and then the wine matured in barrels for 15 months in predominately 2nd fill and 3rd fill French oak barrels.
Food Pairing Notes
Pair this fruit-forward Reserve Merlot with a special meal such as prime rib, served with a crispy potato galette, and caramelized, roasted vegetables.
