Merlot 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

Our Merlot is produced solely from our estate vineyards where yields are typically as low as 2 tons/acre. After fermentation, the wine undergoes extended skin contact prior to aging in French oak barrels. A quintessential Merlot, this wine is made from grapes grown on our estate and boasts concentrated flavors of ripe plum and cherry with a hint of cassis and cedar. A velvety texture makes the perfect foil for the extracted flavors, while balanced structure allows this wine to stand up to many cuisines. For a special evening, try this merlot with a grilled leg of lamb.

The Winery Pietra Santa and its History Pietra Santa is a family-run estate producing artisanal wines and olive oils in California’s Central Coast. The site was planted to winegrapes in the 1850s by Frenchman Theophile Vache who chose the location because of the maritime climate and unique soils. Pietra Santa is 25 miles from Monterey Bay and benefits from cool coastal breezes that allow for a long growing season. The estate’s location on the San Andreas Fault creates soils rich with granite and limestone that naturally lower yields and add distinctive flavors to the wines. The winery was named PIETRA SANTA, Italian for SACRED STONE, in honor of these exceptional soils. In 2005, the property was purchased by the Blackburns, a family dedicated to preserving and building upon this magnificent winemaking history. Read less
