Merlot

About this Wine

Vineyards

Camelot Merlot was produced from a blend of Lodi, Central Coast and North Coast region grapes. By blending fruit from cool-climate regions with grapes grown in warmer microclimates, we are able to produce a distinctive Merlot with rich, ripe fruit flavors, supple tannins and balanced structure.

Winemaking

Fermented in stainless steel tanks, our Merlot spends eight months in French and American oak to soften and enrich its lush cherry and dark berry flavors.

Winemaker's Notes

Our Merlot displays rich notes of smoky oak and mesquite, which are perfectly balanced with soft, ripe tannins and sweet, dark fruit. On the palate, the wine has a mouth filling, wellstructured foundation of Bing cherry and dark fruit flavors revealing notes of cracked black pepper and caraway in the long, elegant finish.

Pairings

Try this splendid red with grilled meats, pork roasts, red sauce pasta dishes and flavorful hard cheeses.
