Characterized by a rich and powerful red fruit nose with notes of vanilla and toast, this elegant oak matured ruby red wine delights the palate with its overtones of licorice, delicate spice and red fruit, while its tannic content provides a long and firm finish.
This wine can be kept to age for 8 to 12 years.
Canyon Road Winery owns 140 acres of vineyards. The majority of the grapes for its wines are sourced from coastal appellations and selected Northern California vineyards. The California appellation is part of the key to the brand's success, since it allows winemakers to roam prime California sources for just the juice they want.
Associate Winemaker Christopher Munsell and Assistant Winemaker Ondine Chattan are the young, dynamic winemaking duo at the head of Canyon Road who are passionate about one thing: making high-quality wines a part of Americans' everyday dining experience. The winemakers work closely with local growers to assure quality fruit, vinify the lots of grapes separately, and then blend the lots before aging (as opposed to aging each lot and then blending.) This technique—and the expertise used to balance the characteristics of each lot against others—creates smooth, well-integrated wines of complexity and depth.
Made from--you guessed it--six different Merlot clones, including two rare French ones and a very rare Italian clone grown on the Peirano estate in Lodi. This ripe and toasty red brims with aromas of black cherries, sweet raspberries, vanilla, and cocoa, while supple tannins leave a pleasing and lingering finish.
$24.00This Merlot captures the essence of Mendocino...strong, vibrant, cutting edge all while never losing focus of its reason for being. Intense aromas on the nose of black cherry, cherry cola and tobacco. The blend has a robust but balanced structure of solid tannins, typical of Mendocino reds. Those of you patient enough to age this wine will be handsomely rewarded over the coming years. Pair this wine with your favorite roast duck and barbequed lamb chop recipes.
