Pine Ridge Merlot Napa Valley Crimson Creek 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

"The majority of the fruit for this wine is sourced from our Carneros Collines and McKinnon vineyards, situated in the cool rolling hills of the Carneros AVA. Mild temperatures allow the grapes to hang for an extended period of time prior to harvest. This extra time on the vine combined with our dense planting practices results in richly concentrated fruit and a robustly-structured Merlot that exhibits unmatched balance and poise. Vibrant and fruit forward, this brilliant ruby wine presents an expressive nose of ripe red cherry, freshly picked blueberry and strawberry cream, swirled with whispers of dried violets, salted caramel and fresh mint leaf. Crisp upon entry, the wine fills the palate with warm flavors of Bing cherry and strawberry syrup, following with sweet vanilla bean, spice and honeyed graham cracker notes that linger through a clean finish framed by silky tannins." -Winery
