Brass Tacks 2006 Merlot, Central Coast

Vintage Notes
The grapes for this wine were sourced from the Central Coast's Hames Valley AVA. High winds, dry days and ocean fog from the Pacific Ocean create a cool, long growing season, allowing the fruit to stay on the vine longer, leading to full, forward fruit flavors and ideal acidity. The wine was fermented in stainless steel and completed malolactic fermentation in French oak barrels, where it aged for 8 months prior to bottling.

Tasting Notes
Brass Tacks Merlot offers tasty red berry and ripe cherry fruit with hints of spice and vanilla from nicely integrated oak.

90 points - Publisher's Pick
"Rich, full-flavored and fruit-forward; juicy with body and streamlined tannins; nice, nuanced vanilla and a holiday pie melding of nutmeg, cinnamon and clove."
- Patterson's Tasting Panel, October 2009
