De Loach Heritage Reserve Merlot 2014
Our California Merlot was made from carefully selected Merlot grapes grown in prestigious, sustainably farmed vineyards across California. All of our California appellation wines carry the Heritage Reserve designation and reflect our commitment to showcasing the Golden State's sun-drenched terroir.A small portion of the wine was aged in seasoned American oak barrels to impart a light oak characteristic while allowing the wine to stay true to its varietal character and retain its approachable, fruit-forward style. Prior to bottling, the Merlot was blended with a small quantity of other Bordeaux varietals for added depth and complexity. Offers opulent flavors of black cherry, blackberry, and dusty chocolate all underlined by toasty vanilla oak. The wine's soft, lush, texture and smooth tannins make this Merlot a wonderful wine to enjoy right now with a variety of culinary delights.
