2017 Estate Merlot

Club Price: $19.20

Complex and true to taste for a cool grown Merlot.

The grapes for our Merlot come from our Five Sisters Estate Vineyard located adjacent to the winery and on Catapult Ranch located east of Petaluma, both in the Sonoma Coast AVA. This is a cool growing region which often has fog cover until late morning and sunny, breezy afternoons. It yields grapes with great intensity and bright acidity.
