Wine Maker Notes
Our Angeline Merlot is crushed in small lots and fermented in stainless steel open top tanks. The juice is then cold-soaked for two days, followed by gentle punchdowns to accentuate the rich fruit character, pressed to barrels and aged in French and American oak for twelve months. This Merlot has a deep, dark purple hue with brooding, layered aromas of sage, mint, black cherry and blackberry. Rich, full-bodied flavors of ripe plum, black cherry, spice, earth tones and soft raspberry are touched with subtle accents of oak and vanilla.
