Blackstock Merlot Reserve 2005

Member Review by RSHall:

Top quality More translucent than expected for a Merlot. Rich fruit nose, some woody oak. Palate very smooth and balanced. Red fruit, spice, maraschino cherry. Well integrated tannins. Adequately complex, notable in a single varietal. Notably long finish. Would lay down well for three years plus.

BlackStock Vineyards, the first of the current vineyards in the Dahlonega area, was founded by formally-trained winemaker David Harris, a 20+ year pioneer in Georgia wine. After a decade dedicated to evolving a vineyard, BlackStock now offers an estate winery for your pleasure. Enjoy spectacular views of the Blue Ridge Mountains in the panorama of lush vineyards, while experiencing some of the best wines in the Southeast. We produce hand-crafted complex wines that cater to the serious enthusiast, but with a sense of balance that is both easily approachable and enjoys wide appeal. Our goal in the tasting room is to provide an educational experience for those with a passion to learn more about wine, and in a very relaxed, down-to-earth environment. Enjoy a glass of port and the warm atmosphere of our Appalachian-style lodge with its unique three-sided “stovepipe” fireplace and expansive window views of the Blue Ridge. Or enjoy the cool summer breezes and a glass of White Merlot on our 2,000 square-foot covered deck. We offer deli selections daily, with fresh baked goods and live music often featured on weekends. The winery specializes in private events from formal weddings of up to 200, to informal luncheons on our vineyard deck. We also offer a unique weekday meeting environment for corporate retreats with optional team-building programs. Our stone encased cellar provides another unique venue for a more intimate affair, accented by a waterfall feature that naturally humidifies over a hundred barrels. All BlackStock wines are currently made exclusively from estate grown grapes produced from the winery property. The Harris family believes that wine is made in the vineyard, and our wines represent specific field selections grown to fulfill their particular niche and style. While the cellar practices are meticulous and detail-oriented, the emphasis is on gentle handling and minimal intervention. The real differences are derived from how our wine grapes are managed in the vineyard. Read less
