Hanna Bismark Mountain Merlot 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Purple garnet in color, aromas of boysenberry jam and warm cocoa, Blue Gum, Pimenta, crushed violet and Blue Bonnets. Flavors and Muesli, clove, vanilla, cherry, mint, plum and olive. Texturally, it is layered and savory with a silky, unctuous mid palate. The 2006 Bismark Merlot finishes with a youthful tug from fine tannin and plush, easygoing acidity.

Hanna has evolved from a winery dependent primarily on outside growers, to a 100% estate winery, with 252 acres of planted vineyards in three of Sonoma County's finest appellations. Our own vineyards allow us to control every aspect of grape growing, and we feel our wine quality has improved immeasurably. Alexander Valley Red Ranch We affectionately call this our "Red Ranch" as it is currently planted to Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. When we first bought the ranch in 1985, it was planted in large part to Chardonnay and French Colombard. We find the red loam soils and warm climate to be ideal for the red Bordeaux varieties. With gently sloping blocks and terraced hillsides, this 100 acre ranch is also home to a tasting room with panoramic views. The Mediterranean style tasting room sits atop a knoll overlooking our "Red Ranch" vineyard and Alexander Valley. A stunning wrap-around veranda is the perfect place to enjoy the view while sipping our award winning wines. The vineyard is home to our flagship Cabernet and Merlot. Open Daily 10-4 Read less
