2019 OLABISI ROSE of MERLOT

Napa Valley

STORY: The first-blush bottling of our 2019 Merlot, in the saignée style. A luminescent peach-colored juice gently drawn from the cold freshly crushed Merlot grapes, then fermented separately in a single stainless steel barrel. A rare gem indeed. Also known as "the red wine drinker's rosé."
Blend: 100% Merlot
Alcohol: 14.5%
Production: 20 cases
TASTING NOTES - Aromas of fresh cantaloupe, cinnamon, guava, toasted almond, fruitcake, and lime popsicles. On the palate, kiwis, pears, and dragon fruit, with a cool, ethereal minerality. Pairs well with tacos, quesadillas, spicy wings, hard cheeses, and porch socials. (Enjoy 2020 - 2026)
