Winemaker's Notes

Rooted in Arcilla clay soils and influenced by the cool marine breeze of the nearby San Pablo Bay, the 2019 vintage is lush with red cherry, blackberry and boysenberry notes. Offering a touch of warm spice and gentle earthiness on the palate, the 2019 Merlot, Arcilla is kissed by supple and velvety tannins on the finish.
