The Sonoma Valley Merlot is from the Petricka Vineyard just south of the town of Sonoma in the warm alluvial soil of the Mayacamas Mountains. These grapes provide wonderful aromas and flavors of ripe blackberry, bright cherry and a hint of anise and cocoa.

Aging in the best tight grain French oak barrels adds complexity, toasty vanilla, and supple tannins for a long smooth finish.
