Chad MERLOT Incline 2019
This single-vineyard Merlot started as sort of an experiment with a particularly juicy southwest-facing block Merlot at a 18 degree incline along the Mayacamas. Fermented from tiny, flavorful clusters, this wine is elegant and intensely structured, with notes of blackberry, black currants, sage, and cocoa-dusted blueberries. Soft and generous on the palate, the wine is pure and vibrant, with a long, smooth finish. Great with barbecue, roasts, and cozy spring evenings.
