Pasatiempo Merlot Sonoma/Carneros Sangiacomo Vineyard 2004
Winner: Double Gold Medal/2007 West Coast Wine Competition Winner: BEST OF CLASS Gold Medal/2007 Sonoma County Harvest Fair The legendary Sangiacomo Vineyard is the source of many of our fine Chardonnays; the site is equally suited, however, to the cultivation of great Merlot. This 100% Merlot displays the depth and richness associated with the cooler climate of the Carneros district of southern Sonoma Valley. Rich, dark berry fruit is accented with oak derived vanillin, toast and spice. The tannins are firm yet fine grained, making this wine amply structured for bottle age (6-8 years), yet delicious on the table tonight. 100% Merlot Sonoma Valley-Carneros-Sangiacomo Ranch 23 months/Radoux cooperage Alc: 14.5% TA: 6.2 G/L PH: 3.52 950 cases produced
