1999 Merlo

1999 Reserve Merlo Wine Details

Description: Oregon-Columbia Valley-Hillside Vineyard. These few barrels were so good, structure and balance of fruit just right, that we bottled them separately as our very first RESERVE selection. A different barrel selection and fractions of press juice, this wine feels weightier (a new word?) and more viscous as well as slightly more dense in its blackberry fruit. When melded together with the toasted coffee accents of these particular barrels, this wine has become a standout! Add in a year of bottle age to round out the softness of tannins and voila!
