Jack London Vineyard Sonoma Mountain Merlot 2013

The Jack London Vineyard creates distinctive red wines that have a loyal following throughout the world. The red volcanic soil and pleasantly warm climate of this hillside location combine to produce rich, full-bodied wines. Located on Sonoma Mountain with a southeastern exposure, the vineyard is above the fog level and receives early morning sun, followed by late afternoon breezes which temper the day's most extreme heat. The result of this exceptional terroir is grapes of great distinction that make wines with superb flavor and deep, rich color.

Winemakers Notes

The year before the growing season of 2013 was very dry and mild, making for nearly perfect growing conditions. The fruit was harvested on September 24th and brought to the winery where it was crushed into stainless steel tanks for fermentation. After fermentation was complete the young wine was pressed and settled before aging in barrels for 19 months. Then the blend was assembled and a small amount of Cabernet Sauvignon was added to give additional complexity and balance.
