Highland Estates Merlot 2006

This highly acclaimed Merlot release is grown in the relatively new Bennett Valley AVA. At elevations reaching 1400, the site is exceptionally cool for Merlot, giving the fruit a long hangtime before harvest to develop intense flavor and color. Aged 17 months in French oak barrels, 37% new. VINEYARDS Taylor Peak | Bennett Valley Elevation: 1,200 ..
