STYLE: The bouquet of this Merlot is complex with violets, sweet plums, rosemary, and vanilla bean. On the palate, the wine is velvety and soft in texture, with flavors of juicy plums, blackberries, and Bing cherries, and a long cocoa powder finish and fine tannins. WINEMAKING: Handpicked at the peak of flavor development, the 2013 Merlot was crushed and cold soaked for 24 hours. The must was punched down daily to maximize flavor extraction, followed by a 7-10 day extended maceration. SOURCING: Premium wine growing regions throughout the state including Sonoma and Mendocino counties. Cooperage Treatment: Oak aged with new French oak for 14 months.

CaliforniaJosh Cellars Merlot is sourced from premium wine growing regions throughout California, including Mendocino, Lake, Napa and Sonoma Counties. Joseph Carr was an award winning Sommelier and international wine industry executive who set out on his own in 2005 and founded Joseph Carr Winery in Carneros, California. It was, as Mr. Carr says, a chance to follow a dream. "Were a family owned company dedicated to making world class, handcrafted wines. We work with small growers, coopers and winemakers producing elegant, sophisticated, yet approachable wines from Napa Valley, Carneros, and the North Coast of California."Pair Josh Merlot with steak, burgers, pork chops and grilled vegetables.

Aromas of black cherries, fresh plums, violet and dark chocolate overwhelm the bouquet. On the palate, the wine is layered with fresh bing cherries, baked plums, and mocha, softened by its delicate, almost luxurious texture, and given staying power with a long, raspberry and cocoa powder finish. - WineryCuvEE:85% Merlot15% Cabernet SauvignonTreatment: French Oakalc/vol: 13.0%Ta: 5.5 g/Lph: 3.50ava: California
