Frostwatch-Merlot-Bennett Valley, Sonoma County-2013

Frostwatch
Merlot
Bennett Valley, Sonoma County
2013

$35.00

Estate vineyard in Sonoma’s Bennett Valley, just south of Santa Rosa. Very concentrated style. Smell and taste chocolate covered black cherries, mulberries, cola, apple pie spices, toasty oak. Ripe and unctuous, the varietal character is concealed, making this a good choice if you like smooth, ripe Cabernets.

From February 15, 2017 newsletter:
"Frostwatch owns and farms their Merlot vines in Sonoma's Bennett Valley, just south of Santa Rosa. In 2013 they must have let the grapes hang extra long because the wine is very dark and ripe with low acid and smooth tannins. Smell and taste chocolate covered black cherries, mulberries, cola, apple pie spices, toasty oak. Ripe and unctuous, the varietal character is concealed, making this a good choice if you like smooth, ripe Cabernets. Pair this with roast or grilled red meat, smoky and garlic-y dishes."
