La Rocca Vineyards Merlot Estate Bottled 2008

Member Review by Gretchen Marie:

It appears to be a clear, pale garnet color. It has a light, clean scent of earth (mushroom), black fruit (black cherry and blackberry), and a little dried fruit (prune). The wine is light and dry on the palate with medium acidity, medium tannins, and medium body. Like the nose, it tastes of earth, black fruit, and dried fruit.

For Phillip LaRocca, owner and vintner, the character of the wine is absolutely dependent upon the quality of the grape. Growing grapes organically includes using farming methods that nurture the soil, air and water.
