Brass Tacks 2007 Merlot, Central Coast

 

 

Vintage Notes
The 2007 Merlot was 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.

Food Pairings
Enjoy with pot roasts, lamb chops, grilled salmon, and duck.

Accolades
88 points, Editors' Choice
"Bone dry, with brisk tannins, this is a Merlot to drink with good food and not worry about the wine overshadowing it. It’s really drinkable, with a soft, lush mouthfeel and flavors of cherries, currants, spices and cedar."
