SKU: 2011 Merlot

"A pretty, delicate wine, the 2011 impresses for its balance."  [Antonio Galloni, Vinous, 11/13.]  Our Merlot comes from our “Blending Blocks” which grow at an elevation of approximately 700 feet next to the Kathryn Hall and Sloan properties at the top of the hill above Auberge du Soleil.  The wine has structure and grace, marvelous fruit on the mid-palate, but not a trace of flab.  The tannins are firm and balanced, leaning toward the character of Merlot-based wines from the Right Bank.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
The 2011 Merlot has pretty aromas of violets and black cherries, licorice and oak spice. On the palate it is round, bright and juicy.
