2015 Star Lane Merlot, Star Lane Vineyard

2015 Star Lane Merlot, Star Lane Vineyard

WINEMAKER NOTES We’ve noted previously our belief that the best Merlot’s are both charming and serious. The 2014 leans toward the charming side as the vintage provided very pure fruit characters within elegant textures. We did apply a bit more new oak to balance the vintage’s freshness with a bit of sweetness from the new oak. The integration was superb. While we added a bit of Cabernet Sauvignon for texture, our goal was to make this as pure of a Merlot as possible to show off its finesse and charm. In the end we settled on a blend of 91% Merlot, 8% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 1% of Cabernet Franc and Malbec.
