Winemaker's Notes

Named after the ribbon of exceptional clay that winds through our Merlot vineyard, our 2021 Arcilla Merlot offers concentrated notes of currant, black cherry, and pie-filling, accompanied by delicate hints of dried flowers, sage, and leather. On the palate, deep fruit tones harmonize with savory coffee and truffle flavors that carry through on a lingering, finish. Crafted from a blend of 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Sauvignon, this wine presents a bold expression of a cooler climate Merlot.
