Muscedere Vineyards Merlot 2011 Review

Sat 22, Feb. 14

0 Reviews
4.00 overall score

Winemaker’s Notes:
Our first single varietal Merlot comes from the most challenging growing season we have experienced to date. (more rain than we would have liked). Yields were kept very low and the grapes for this wine were sorted in the vineyard and then sorted a second time before processing.

This wine exhibits hints of dark chocolate and ripened berries on the nose and palate. Enjoy with caramelized roasted vegetables, tomato based dishes or hardy red meats.

Hand-harvested: October 16, 2011.
