Very classic for the Merlot variety. Nice oak nose with hints of black berries. Burgundy color. Very dry and filled with tannins with a balanced acidity. Tastes of cherry but ultimately overwhelmed by the tannins. Opens up after some time and may be matured well over time.

Rich, deep black-ruby hue, aromas of black stone fruits and fruitcake, flavor notes of black cherries, black plums, baking spice and sweet wood that carry to a long, graceful finish.

Deep garnet with a ruby edge, our 2010 Sonoma County Merlot is spicy, elegant, and versatile with layer after luscious layer of red and black fruit playing off of each other. We're happy with the wine's structure and its wonderfully balanced acidity. The nose is a treasure trove of dark baking spices including clove and nutmeg, and it also offers earthy hints of black pepper, cedar, bay laurel, and sweet vanilla notes delightfully framing bright fruit aromas of blackberry, red cherry, and plum. Plum follows through on the palate, along with black cherry and rich blackberry preserves lightly lifted by toast and vanilla notes. This medium-boded wine finishes with soft, yet insistent cocoa tannins. We think you'd enjoy this Merlot with garlic spot prawns and mushroom pizza, cedar-smoked squab with Merlot-grape compote, or roasted salmon with wild risotto cake. - WineryAppellation: Sonoma CountyVarietal Composition:94% Merlot3% Cabernet Sauvignon2% Malbec1% Cabernet Fr...

Bright notes of cherry, cranberry and blackberry accented with aromas of clove, cocoa and violets. Upfront red berry fruit leads to a medium bodied wine with elegance and balance.

Deep garnet with a ruby edge, our 2009 Sonoma County Merlot is spicy and a bit dark and brooding as it opens with aromas of exotic sandalwood, sweet dark spices, cloves, and cinnamon along with hints of black pepper and bay. The rich, dark character continues with layered flavors of red plum, black cherry, and blackberry preserves, framed with notes of toasty oak, that give depth to this medium-bodied, nicely structured wine. The finish offers soft cocoa tannins. We suggest you enjoy this Merlot with exotic mushroom and oven-dried Roma tomato polenta torte, panroasted duck breast with Bing cherry sauce, or roasted salmon and goat cheese latke. - WineryAppellation: Sonoma CountyVarietal Composition:98% Merlot2% Cabernet SauvignonFermentation: 100% stainless steelAging: 22 months in a combination of small French and American oak barrels (32% new)Total Acidity: 5.8 g/LpH: 3.65Alcohol: 13.5%Bottling Date: January 18, 2012Release Date: February 8, 2012Cases Produced: 15,484

Simirsquo;s 2000 Merlot is marked by good concentration and depth, showing dark notes of mocha, blackberry and anise, and finishing with a refreshing hint of menthol carried along by shapely tannins and moderate acidity.

Winemaker's Notes:

"With the first sip, you’ll understand why the Alexander Valley is famed for Merlot and other red Bordeaux grapes. Most of the fruit for this wine, rich with blackberry and plum, comes from this valley." -Winery
