Alexander Valley Vineyards Estate Grown & Bottled Wetzel Family Estate Merlot

$107.87 / case(12)



Merlot from the wetzel family estate has a reputation for being a big structured wine. First produced in 1984 this has never been one of those fruit bombs or thin and wimpy wines. The western drought continued in 2015 and was once again the topic of much discussion. A cool spring rain at bloom and a hot july along with the continued effects from the lack of rain contributed to lower yields. As a result the grapes had terrific concentration and superb fruit flavors at harvest. We prune our merlot vines heavily and drop fruit several times during the growing season so the remaining clusters ripen evenly. Winemaker kevin hall has found that fermenting merlot at a little cooler temperature than some of our other bordeaux grapes maintains the lush flavors and structure. After fermentation the lots spend 15 months aging in a combination of french and american oak barrels. This wine always impresses red wine lovers and we refer to it as a merlot for cabernet lovers.
