Mirassou Winery Merlot
In the mood for red? This luscious vintage is packed with dark fruit—think blackberry, black cherry and raspberry—and layered with smooth vanilla, sweet aromatics and soft tannins for a plush feel on the palate. A cheese plate’s best friend, this is a great wine to have on hand for spur-of-the-moment entertaining.
We harvested these grapes mostly at night to keep them cool. A portion of the fruit was then held in a cold soak for 24 hours before fermentation to maximize the extraction of flavors and color. Fermentation took place at hotter temperatures to further enhance flavor and pigmentation. Wine was racked every two months and aged on oak to complement the natural intensity of the fruit with layers of soft vanilla and sweet aromatics.
