Merlot

California

The Paris Valley Road Merlot has aromas of black cherry, plum, and blueberry, accentuated by lingering hints of vanilla and spice. On the palate, ripe fruit, dry herbs, and cocoa flavors are complemented by velvety soft tannins, well-balanced acidity, and an elegant finish.

Winemaker Notes
Sourced primarily from our Chalk Knoll Vineyard in southern Monterrey County this wine is aged for 18 months in 20% new oak. A blend of Merlot and a splash of Petite Sirah, this wine proves that Merlot is still a delicious varietal.
