Vin Vault Merlot has aromas of dark cherry and blackberry, layered with a hint of toasted oak and nutmeg. This medium-bodied wine has rich, savory flavors of blackberry and dark plum with round, soft tannins and a lingering finish.
NOTES FROM THE WINEMAKER
After fermentation, the wine was aged for up to nine months with oak exposure to preserve the fresh fruit aromas while integrating oak flavors and forming a balanced, complex structure.
California produces the majority of wine made in the United States. Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Sauvignon Blanc, Zinfandel and Pinot Noir dominate the wine production in California, but many other varietials thrive in the California climate. Many fine wines are produced in California using Mediterranean grapes.
