This is our third vintage of merlot from Coquelicot.  The low valley planting is well-suited to Merlot as it stays cold through the morning and gets hot in the afternoon.  This combination produces ripe fruit with well-balanced, natural vibrancy and acidity.  It is routinely our most aromatic no sulfites added wine with notes of berries, holiday spices and fruit cake, with a crisp, medium-to-full body and medium-long finish.

Tasting Notes: fruity, jammy aromas of ripe juicy berries, holiday spices, and fruit cake with a velvety, crisp, fruity medium-to-full body and a charming, medium-long cassis, blackberry, blueberry, raspberry, mulberry, huckleberry, burnt sugar, toasty oak, and black pepper finish with chewy tannins and moderate oak.
