Paint Horse Merlot Sonoma Valley 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

The wine has lush fruit reminiscent of blackberry cobbler. There are hints of spice (cloves and allspice) plus nuances of toasty oak and vanilla. The mouth the wine is full bodied with flavors of ripe berries and soft, supple fine grained tannins. The finish is long and lingering making it a pleasure to drink now or after some cellar aging.

Paint Horse Ranch:
There are two distinct and compelling passions in our lives-Wine and Paint Horses. Both have a long and distinguished history in California. Paints are descendents of horses that arrived with the Spanish Conquistadors in the mid 1700’s. They mingled and flourished with wild native horses that roamed the western plains and deserts.

There are two distinct and compelling passions in our lives-Wine and Paint Horses. Both have a long and distinguished history in California. Paints are descendents of horses that arrived with the Spanish Conquistadors in the mid 1700’s. They mingled and flourished with wild native horses that roamed the western plains and deserts. Once domesticated, they were prized for their remarkable strength and beauty. Native American Tribes believed that Paint Horses possessed magical powers. The first vinefera vines in California were also planted by the Spanish. Our Sonoma Valley ranch is home to both Paints and Vines. Over 300 ancient olive trees accentuate the equestrian facilities and vineyards. The wines produced from our Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot vines, grown in the Valley of the Moon, have strong character and good breeding. Both Paints and Vines are groomed and nurtured with care.

The wine has classic aromas of cassis and ripe berry with notes of red plums. There are notes of tea, black olive and cola as well as toasty oak and a subtle mineral element. The flavors are rich and dense with ripe berry flavors and fine grained tannins. The finish is long lingering and promises a wine that is not only a pleasure now but one that will reward patient cellar aging.
