"A solid Merlot, with currant and tomato leaf aromas and modest flavors of cherry, cedar and herb." Wine Spectator Alexander Valley Vineyards asks: What makes our Merlot so different than others? It's the warm days and cool nights of the Valley, combined with the alluvial clay soil, along with vineyard management, and handcrafting the wine. This wine included 4 barrels of Malbec, adding deeper color, additional plum favors and a touch of tannin. After fermentation the lots spend 16 months aging in a combination of French and American oak barrels. This wine always impresses red wine lovers. There are aromas of cherry, dusty plum, cassis, cola, eucalyptus and cocoa powder in the glass. This is a fruit forward wine with nice balance and flavors of red cherry, cassis, blackberry, plum, dark fruits and dark chocolate. The finish is juicy and structured with a long finish.
