2018 Little Frances Merlot


2018 Little Frances Merlot, Sierra Foothills, California

Merlot may have had a bad rap in recent years, but don’t let that deter you from this concentrated and vibrant rendition. Grown at 2000ft elevation in (certified organic) shallow soil over impenetrable rock. These demure vines provided small clusters and tiny berries bursting with flavor. Red raspberry, sweet blueberry and cranberry acidity keep this deep purple wine salivatingly fresh. Fine tannins provide a taught and nervy structure through the wine. This wine simultaneously offers a pretty delicacy and audacious power.

Decanting recommended.
