Long Lake Merlot 2009

External Review:

The wine is barrel aged for months in American and French oak and blended to give it complexity, depth and tannic structure while leaving it soft and round. This wine is full-bodied enough to pair well with meat, poultry and pasta dishes, yet balanced with soft and concentrated fruit, making it a delightful wine to enjoy by the glass. Anticipate pleasant flavors of black cherry, cassis and cloves, combined with toasty vanilla from oak aging.

Rabbit Ridge Winery & Vineyards:
All of our vineyards in Paso Robles are located on the west side of highway 101. Erich believes this area of limited water, shallow, rugged, rocky, calcareous soils will produce some of the finest wines in Paso Robles, and among the finest in California. Erich planted his vineyards precisely throughout the Paso Robles appellation to take advantage of the unique micro climates and soil characteristics that would best suit each grape variety.

Rich, ripe black cherry flavors layered with violets, chocolate, vanilla cream and soft undertones of toasted oak.
