Merlot

Vintage: 2011
Appellation: Napa Valley, California
Vineyard Location: Burgess Estate Triere Vineyard, Yountville
Grape Variety: 100% Merlot
Winemaking Data:
Alcohol 13.7%; pH 3.65; T.A. 0.58; 100% Malolactic fermentation
Harvest Notes:   After a consistently cool summer Napa enjoyed a long period of warm weather which provided a perfect ripening period.

Description:
The 2010 Merlot, like our previous vintages, demonstrates a unique intense varietal personality along with a richness associated with the vintage. The most common flavor characteristics of Merlot, blueberries and black cherries, are stunning with a hint of mint. The 2008 is 100% Merlot from our Triere Estate vineyard in the Oak Knoll District just south of Yountville. This region of Napa Valley is ideal for bringing Merlot to full maturity, with vines that are oriented north to south so that they capture both morning and afternoon sun, producing a full-bodied, rich, complex wine with a long lasting finish.
