Bonterra Merlot 2014
For our Merlot the lots were fermented separately before being combined to create the final blend. The heritage of Bordeaux can be experienced in this blend, with added touches of Petite Sirah, Syrah and Carignane. The wine was aged using a combination of French and American oak barrels. The resulting wine has aromas of black plums, dark cherries and a touch of oak with flavors of dark berries, toasty oak and vanilla spice. This wine has a nice structure and balance, soft tannins and a long finish.
