Single Vineyard Kenwood Estate Merlot 2016

Concentrated aromas of black plum, rum raisin and molasses are combined with subtle notes of vanilla and dried blueberry. The palate is full bodied with excellent balance and flavors of redcurrant, toasty oak and cinnamon.

Winemakers Notes

Harvested on October 3, 2016, the fruit was hand harvested and brought to the winery for crushing and destemming before fermenting on the skins. The young wine was then pressed into stainless steel tanks for several months of settling before being placed in small French oak barrels. After 18 months of aging, the best-tasting barrels were separated from the lot of assembled to be bottled as our limited release, Kenwood Estate Vineyard Merlot.
