This 2009 Merlot from our estate-owned vineyards in Sonoma County, is a rich, complex wine with luscious cherry aromas and accents of spice, chocolate and caramel that lingers on the silky finish. Beautifully balanced, this wine can be enjoyed with roasted meat, chicken and pasta dishes.

Winemaker Notes - This wine is comprised of 97% Merlot and 3% Cabernet Sauvignon. The cool-climate, valley-floor vineyards produce supple, fruit-forward wine, while the mountain top vineyard fruit lends intensity and structure. Upon entering the winery, the hand-harvested grapes are destemmed and then fermented in tank before gentle pressing. The wine is moved to barrels and aged for 17 months, allowing for the perfect balance of fruit, tannin, and oak.

Select lots of grapes are chosen from Ferrari-Carano’s vineyards in Sonoma County to create this beautifully-balanced and full-bodied Ferrari-Carano Merlot. This wine is comprised of 95% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot. The cool-climate, valley-floor vineyards produce supple, fruit-forward wine, while the mountain top vineyard fruit lends intensity and structure. Upon entering the winery, the hand-harvested grapes are destemmed, cold soaked for five days, and then fermented in tank before gentle pressing. The wine is moved to barrels and aged for 16 months, allowing for the perfect balance of fruit, tannin, and oak.
