Smoking Loon Merlot 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

Our wines are crafted for those with an appetite for adventure, those in touch with their inner loon, those who consider pretense simply unnecessary. Each vintage provides our winemakers the perfect opportunity to have a little fun and indulge their inner loon. They start by scouring the top wine regions of the world for the finest fruit. Then, they gently guide that fruit to its fullest potential, creating fruit-forward, well-balanced wines that offer a keen blend of approachability, quality and value.

Sweet cherry fruit marries with charry oak notes, some dried tomato and attractive dried herb aromas on the nose. Soft and low on entry, this shows a bit of sweetness along with the red berry fruit while maintaining a bit of herbaceousness in the mouth. The fruit on the palate shows that same tomato like fruitiness that one gets on the nose, and it leads to a modest little finish which again shows a touch of sweetness but buffered by some dry tannins. rather simple but well balanced and fresh enough to warrant another sip. 84pts

Our California Merlot has aromas of concentrated wild strawberries and tea leaf, with a touch of herbaceous sage for extra complexity. On the palate, this wine has classic Merlot character, with bright cranberry and cherry flavors and a light herbal note, expertly balanced with integrated oak and hints of milk chocolate. Medium-bodied with moderate tannins, the zesty acidity makes this an excellent wine for food-pairing. - Winery
