User Reviews for Heron Merlot California

Winemaker's Notes:

With this Merlot, I seek to balance the lush California fruit with just the right amount of oak to allow the true character of the particular vineyards and varietal to shine through. Like my French Merlot we ferment in stainless steel and use a program of New, one and two year-old French oak barrels to achieve a smooth, elegant and approachable wine. Best Buy - Heron Merlot, California: "Great bang for the buck with this round and soft California red, with good intensity to the pleasant flavors of plum, currant and cranberry, underscored by soft tannins." Wine Spectator June 2001 Heron California Merlot has a bright garnet color. Lush fruit aromas of red and black cherry as well as dark plum complement its complex vanilla spiciness. This elegant wine is of medium weight on the palate, is rich and silky with a beautiful balance between fruit and oak, leading to a long, smooth finish. Sugar: .05% Oak: French
