Kunde is a family owned wine estate in Sonoma Valley that’s been around for over 100 years. All of its wines are estate bottled, produced from grapes grown in its own 1,850 acres of vineyards, which is very unique in this day and age. What else is unique about Kunde is their commitment to sustainable farming and environmentally beneficial practices throughout the winery. Last year the state of California recognized Kunde Estate and awarded it the Governors Environmental and Economic Leadership Award. This is California's highest environmental honor; quite an accomplishment in a state known for leading the way on environmental initiatives. And with that, they still make outstanding wines. This 2006 Merlot is a full bodied red that shows depth and expression. The Wine Spectator described it as "Appealing for its nicely mature currant, cedar and anise aromas and soft flavors. Finishes with delicate tannins."

This is California's highest environmental honor; quite an accomplishment in a state known for leading the way on environmental initiatives. And with that, they still make outstanding wines. This 2006 Merlot is a full bodied red that shows depth and expression. It has ripe fruit but in a complex framework of lively but elegant tannins. Blackberry, cassis, herbs, chocolate and cedar notes stand out on the palate. This is a Cab lover’s Merlot.


Winemaker's Notes:

"The 2006 harvest brought a very even, steady flow of Merlot grapes into the winery at Kunde Family Estate. The measured pace of the harvest allowed us to avoid any hurried picks and truly cherry-pick each block when the fruit was fully ripe. Our 2006 Merlot is supple and balanced, opening up nicely to reveal complexity and depth in its layers of flavors. The wine shows the classic varietal aromas of tea leaf with ripe plums, black cherries, and toasty oak. We recommend serving it with a garlicky lamb roast or a creamy polenta filled with wild mushrooms. You'll find other great flavors to match with our 2006 Merlot."
