2018 Merlot "Lost Vineyard"

From our two acre "Lost Vineyard" block, the '18 Merlot is bright and fruit-forward, but without an ounce of flab. Winemaker Diana Seysses speaks of the wine's "bounce" and "joyous energy."  Fermented with native wild yeasts, blended with 5% Cabernet Sauvignon, aged for 14 months in French oak, the wine was bottled unfiltered and unfined - 898 cases were produced.

Winemaker Notes
The 2018 Merlot is bright and bouncy, with crunchy red fruit, a juicy mouth-watering texture, and faint, supple tannins. The wine is made to be enjoyed simply and with friends - its joyous energy is contagious. Pair the '18 Merlot with grilled meat and vegetables seasoned with fresh herbs, salt and olive oil.
