Matanzas Creek Merlot 2013

SKU 35443


Within the complex profile of our Sonoma County Merlot you will find a triumvirate of red, black and blue fruits. The nose opens to a medley of red cherry and raspberry, Satsuma plum and sage, with a hint of cocoa powder in the background. The palate is sleek and savory, framed by vibrant acidity and seamless tannins with notes of black slate and graphite that carry through to a lengthy yet elegant finish.

Wine EnthusiastThe producer sources fruit among several appellations for this varietal wine, coaxing a wealth of full-bodied flavor and succulence into its mix of cedar, sage, black cherry and oak. The firm tannin profile provides a structured foundation.
