Llano Estacado Cellar Reserve Merlot 2010
Our 2010 Texas Merlot is a blend of 98.7% Merlot, from the Newsom Vineyard in Plains, Texas and 1.3% Cabernet Sauvignon from the Mont Sec Vineyard located in far West Texas. This wine has a complex bouquet as a result of the extended barrel aging showing hints of dried cranberries and cherries. Our Reserve Merlot has a medium body and is rich in flavor.
The simple mission of Llano Estacado, from its beginning in 1976 to its role as industry leader today, has been to embody the fabulous potential of Texas wines. This mission began with 1,300 cases of wine released in 1977. Today, Llano Estacado is the largest premium winery in the state of Texas, producing wines of world class quality, and taking the lead in introducing not just Texans, but the entire world, to the great wines made in Texas.
