This wine immediately catches you with silky, subtle blueberry and violet aromas. The front palate boasts candied plum, ripened acai and blackberries then transitions to smooth cocoa butter on the finish. From beginning to end, the wine remains juicy, but structured and earthy.
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.
