Medlock Ames Alexander Valley Merlot 2006
2006 was not the easiest vintage but some ruthless fruit thinning and careful babysitting helped get this block to the point of optimal ripeness and balance. As in previous vintages, the core of this wine comes from our oldest Merlot plantings where tiny clusters of inky dark Jefferson clone produce wonderful fruit.
