Inverno Winter Merlot 2014

This beguiling wine was sourced from Merlot in the Amanecer Vineyard. These grapes are watched over by growers Steve and Cindy Newsom in Sundown, Texas.

The grapes were harvested over a 3 day period, then cold soaked for 15 days before fermenting, and pressed as soon as primary fermentation was complete. Aged in a combination of French and American oak barrels, this wine was racked only once prior to bottling with no fining.

This fully mature wine comes across with dry concentrated red fruit, earthiness, dried raspberry and tobacco on the nose. The firm tannin structure of this wine is perfect for a hearty meal or quiet reflection. Though it can be enjoyed now, this wine will drink beautifully in 3 - 4 years.
