Winemaker Kevin Hall Notes
First planted on the Wetzel Family Estate in the 1960s, Merlot is one of our more versatile grapes. With its aromatic nose, silky texture and abundant fruit, it is a major blending component for many of our red wines, including Cabernet Sauvignon and CYRUS, our proprietary red bland. With a small amount of Cabernet Sauvignon blended in, this 2008 Merlot displays the qualities that make it a mainstay in our red wine program. Flavor of blackberry, cassis and sweet oak are neatly framed by soft tannins. This wine can be enjoyed immediately or aged for a decade or more.

The Alexander Valley yields distinctive grapes and wines that are recognized worldwide. Our property was the homestead of pioneer Cyrus Alexander, for whom the valley ...more... is named. We produce delicious wines, rich in varietal character, from our vineyards.
