Winemaker's Tasting Notes
Merlot is harvested from five separate hillside locations on the Truchard Vineyards Estate. The difference in these micro-climates and soil conditions have set our Carneros Merlot apart and has been a favorite of our customers since first planted in 1974. An intense nose of ripe plum, wild blueberries, and cassis with a hint of cedar, earth, and subtle mint. The mouth is layered with bright flavors of black cherries, red currents, and sweet vanilla. Ripe tannins fill the palate and provide an elegant finish of dried red fruits.

93 Points - Ian Blackburn
Punctuated and daft nose of toasted blood orange peal, sage, tarragon, and dried herb. Beautifully balanced red fruits, vanilla, and minerality.  This is Merlot to be proud of and grown on the Estate. A true winner at our 2021 STARS of Merlot - Color 14/15, Aroma 24/25, Body 22/25, Overall Impression 33/35 = 93 Points
