  • A rich, Sonoma County Merlot with succulent flavors of plum, blueberries and cocoa.

Director’s Merlot is made primarily from Clones 3 and 9, selections that become intensely fruity as they ripen on the vine. Clone 3 grapes contribute traditional plum flavors and lushness while Clone 9 is dense, deeply colored, and more tannic. When we blend these Merlot selections together, we create a perfectly balanced wine, expressive on the palate and long on the finish.

2015 Director’s Merlot is one of the most dense and sophisticated vintages of this wine we’ve produced. There is power on the palate while remaining smooth with subtle, well-integrated tannins. A beautiful fragrance of baked blueberry pie, spice box, toasted woods, and dried lavender is followed by sweet, juicy flavors of cherries, blackberries, cloves and vanilla bean.
