ANGELINE RESERVE MERLOT

Producer/Winery: Angeline
Region: Sonoma, California
Grape Varietal: Merlot
ABV: 13.9%
Size: 750ml

Angeline Merlot is crushed in small lots and fermented in stainless steel open top tanks. The juice is then cold-soaked for two days, followed by gentle punchdowns to accentuate the rich fruit character, pressed to barrels and aged in French and American oak for twelve months. This Merlot has a deep, dark purple hue with brooding, layered aromas of sage, vanilla, black cherry and blackberry. Rich, full-bodied flavors of ripe plum, black cherry, spice, earth tones, herbal tea and tobacco are touched with subtle accents of toasty oak and vanilla.
