Food Pairings for Brassfield Estate Winery Merlot High Valley High Serenity Ranch
Winemaking Notes Our twelve and a half acre block of Merlot is planted on the benches of the western hills of High Valley. The soils are of the Manzanita Series known for their excellent drainage and low vigor potential which translates into wines of intense concentration of fruit character and flavor development. Tasting Notes Our 2004 Merlot has a rich garnet hue, with aromas of black cherry, cola nut and cocoa. The rustic flavors of cinnamon spice, plum and bay laurel are enhanced with subtle nuances of vanilla, oak and soy. The complexity of flavors is further enhanced by the soft middle and silky tannins that lead to a lengthy, soft finish.
