This Small Lot Merlot is made with grapes from both our estate vineyards. The grapes from the Dry Creek Vineyard, planted more than a decade ago, provide structure and mouthfeel. The grapes from our younger Red Rock Vineyard offer lovely aromatics and fruit-forward notes.

An expressive Merlot showing loads of plums, cherries, and strawberries that follow through on the palate. A medium-bodied wine with a velvety, smooth finish. This fruit-forward and expressive wine is meant to be enjoyed young.

Production Notes
100% Merlot
Winemaker Notes
Made with 100% estate grown grapes from both of our vineyards. Grapes were hand-harvested and sorted before destemming and crush. A 2-day cold soak allowed for optimal fruit extraction before fermentation. For colour and flavour extraction, pumpovers were done every 4 hours with fermentation temperatures increasing to 28 degrees for peak extraction. After fermentation, a 3-day post maceration was done on the skins for further colour and fine tannin extraction. Grapes were gently pressed, and the wine aged for 15 months in French oak barrels.
Food Pairing Notes
Savour this fruit-forward Merlot with barbeque beef roast, slow-roasted pork loin, and caramelized roasted vegetables.
