Pier 8 Merlot

A.B.V.: 13.4%

Varietal

80% Merlot, 14% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Petite Sirah

 

Location/Production

  • Vineyards are located in the Lodi region of California.

  • The fruit benefits from warm sunny days and cool nights as a result of gentle breezes coming from the Pacific Ocean.

  • This allows the fruit to mature and have a proper balance between fruit character and structure.

  • The fruit was harvested at the peak of flavor and crushed and fermented in stainless steel vessels.

  • The wine was then aged in experienced barrels and allowed to age for twelve months.

 

Color, Nose & Palate

  • The wine is bright like a bright cherry red balloon.

  • The aromas bring thoughts of fresh Bing cherry, raspberry, and strawberry combined with slight notes of vanilla and leather.

  • It is a medium bodied, with nice layers of berry fruit, soft approachable tannins, and earthy structure with a good finish from balanced acidity; all of which lend themselves to good food and a good time.
