2021 Merlot, Arcilla

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.
