Merlot "Schoolhouse Cuvee” is full of fresh, bright aromas and flavors of blackberries, cherries and herbs. It is round, rich and ripe with soft tannins.
Extended maceration was used to add depth, structure and complexity to the wine. The red fermentation tanks are specially designed to give winemakers complete control of the fermentation and rate of extraction. Forty percent of our blend spent a year in a combination of American and French oak barrels.
An ideal pairing with grilled or smoked meats, burgers and pastas.
