Background

For more than 30 years, Merlot has been a signature wine for Matanzas Creek. A noble variety that is the most widely planted grape in its native Bordeaux, Merlot is profoundly impacted by mesoclimates and soils. The cooler sites in Sonoma County, such as Bennett Valley, yield elegant, well-structured wines. The slightly warmer pockets, such as Knights Valley or Alexander Valley, produce rich, powerful wines. Five estate vineyards provide the range of flavors, aromatics and textures needed to create the winery’s four unique bottlings.

Tasting Notes

The 2013 vintage in Sonoma County was stellar. Vineyards were at their maximum potential. Blooming, fruit setting and growing were perfect. Vineyard tasks were concentrated on leang, to increase air circulation while leaving some shade to avoid any sun burn. Each block was particularly selected, fermented and tasted individually.
