Estancia Merlot Keyes Canyon Ranches Central Coast 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Tasting Notes Deep ruby red. Bright cherry fruit with hints of cedar and pepper. Lots of raspberry flavors give this wine its distinguishable character. A round, supple mouthfeel is followed by a long, lingering finish.

The grapes for our wine were selected exclusively from one of the finest Merlot blocks of the W.S. Keyes Vineyard Estate in the Howell Mountain AVA of Napa Valley. The 17-year-old vines, grafted to Clone 3 Merlot, are rooted in white volcanic soils. According to Winemaker Tom Peffer, the white soils on this part of the estate give this Merlot round, seamless tannins and outstanding density The vineyard lies at an elevation of 1,826 ft. on the Howell Mountain plateau, in Napa Valley’s eastern mountain range, giving it a climate distinctively different from the valley floor. Since the vineyard is above the night fog that frequently rolls into Napa Valley, nights are slightly warmer, while the altitude keeps daytime temperatures cooler. Harvest comes later, with long hang-times for the development of deep, complex flavors. Read less

Scents of smoky berry, wood, and a touch of licorice. Has a dry start, flavor of tangy cherries. A very dry and long, warm finish.

Good balance, very drinkable. However, nothing overly complex or amazing, either.

Very fruity and sweet, definitely an impressive merlot. Delightful sweetness resides in both the taste and the aroma, like a shy teenage girl who just had her first crush on a guy. A very simple, lovely, sweet and beautiful wine. I really like it.

Big, dark, chocolatey fruit flavors characterize this wine from Estancia, one of California's most consistent wineries. This shows that unmistakable Merlot mouthfeel, followed by a long, oak-kissed finish.
