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. Lush fruit aromas of red and black cherry as well as dark plum complement its complex vanilla spiciness. Look for red and black cherries, dark plum, a touch of vanilla, and soft tannins. 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
