Cakebread Cellars Merlot 2014

External Review:

Our 2011 Merlot displays expressive aromas of black cherry, red plum and pomegranate with a hint of toasty oak. Rich and juicy on the palate, the wine’s concentrated dark cherry, plum and blackcurrant flavors are supported by fine tannins and balanced acidity, leading to a long, fruitful finish showcasing pleasing cassis and toasty oak tones. Red wines from cool years tend to develop slowly, so while our 2011 Merlot is tasty now, it will reveal the full scope of its charms as it ages. - Winery Grape Variety: 98% Merlot 1% Cabernet Sauvignon 1% Syrah Barrel Aging: 18 months in French oak barrels, 35% new Alcohol Content: 14.1% Total Acidity: 0.61 g/100 ml pH: 3.62
