Grape To Bottle Merlot: Half-case

Grape To Bottle Merlot: Half-case

  • Price $80.00

This bundle contains 6 500mL bottles of the 2016 Grape to Bottle Merlot. Perfect for enjoying any night of the week!

Here’s another gem from our in-house winemaker, Richard Sowalsky, an alum of Robert Mondavi Winery and Clos Pegase. For this modern-style red, he took us to a 25-year-old vineyard planted ahead of its time: It’s part of the newly recognized Los Olivos District appellation of Santa Ynez Valley, in Santa Barbara County where Pinot Noir reigns. But Mesa Verde Vineyard, just 10 miles from the heat-moderating Pacific Ocean, is a special spot perfectly suited to Merlot. GTB Merlot is a fruit-forward take on Bordeaux’s workhorse grape. Because the vines grow in nutrient-poor soils, the grapes have the concentrated flavors typical of California but haven’t lost the nuance of a Bordeaux red.
