Tasting Notes
Another luscious, full, and rich Merlot that illustrates the full potential of the Ehlers Bale Mill terroir. A complex presentation of licorice, black raspberries, red currants, cappuccino, and black chocolate cherries. The tannins are at once fine and chewy, and the bold, juicy structure of this wine is what has always made the Ehlers Merlot a classic that will cellar for decades.
Vineyard Notes
2013 was another great vintage in the Napa Valley. A warm, dry spring got the vines off to an exceptionally early start. No frost, no rain, no unusual heat waves, just endless days of California sunshine with classically warm afternoons and those cool nights that the grapevines adore. Budbreak was early, veraison was early, and the tempo continued right up until harvest. Great quality across the board, healthy fermentations, rich, complex, full bodied wines throughout the Napa Valley. 100% CCOF Certified Organic
