Winemaker's Notes:

Vineyard Notes: Violet-Crowned Merlot is a blend of fruit from the Clos LaChance Estate Vineyard in San Martin (40%) and the Stillwater, Jan Kris, and Anderson Vineyards in Paso Robles (60%). The 80-acre Estate Vineyard was planted in 1999. Hot sunny days throughout the growing season, coupled with cool ocean breezes in the evenings, allow for increased grap hang-time, and the further development of flavors and complexities. Winemaker Tasting Notes: The color of this wine is intense—deep ruby purple. Aromas of ripe plums, smoky berry fruits and spice. Juicy red currant flavors on the entry, followed with rich, red cherry, black cherry and blackberry flavors extending to the mid-palate. A long finish with spicy oak and velvety fruit. Soft, lush and colorful! Food Pairing: Braised Veal with Mushrooms and Root Vegetables, Grilled Pork with Roasted Beets, Dark Chocolate Torte. Technical Notes: Appellation: Central Coast Varietal: 75% Merlot, 12% Cabernet Franc, 11% Cabernet Sauvignon, 2% Malbec Bottle Date: March 22-244, 2005 Oak: 16 months in 30% new American and 5% new French Oak Alcohol: 14.5% Return to Clos LaChance Wine List
