Grape variety:  100% Merlot

Producer: Barnett Vineyards

Alcohol content: 14.6%

Origin: California, USA

Notes: With a deep purple core and rim this wines appearance suggests intensity. The aromatics pop with big dark plum, crushed violets and white chocolate. Some black pepper and clove/nutmeg spices are also apparent. This wine is extremely opulent and plush on the palate with flavors of black cherry, tobacco and coffee. Although this is one of the most tannic Merlots we’ve produced the tannins are chalky vs biting and in balance with the beautiful mountain acidity. Even though the aromatics suggest approachability, this wine will benefit immensely by aging it over the next 10-11 years

Critical acclaim

92 points – Robert Parker

The Wine Advocate - "Lastly, the 2013 Merlot is a beauty. Rich, concentrated, fleshy and fat, this wine from their own vineyard displays plenty of berry fruit, judicious use of toasty oak and a long finish. This is sexy, plump and succulent. Drink it over the next decade or more. "

Food pairing: Grilled Flat Iron Steak, Lamb burgers, Roasted Pork Loin
