Merlot

Buccella Merlot

Our Merlot fruit comes from two blocks atop a knoll in the famed Hyde Vineyard, where harvests typically yield less than two tons per acre. It’s a youthful wine that’s invitingly approachable, while still offering the richness and decadence we love.

OUR TASTING NOTES

The intense nose fairly jumps out the glass with lovely black cherry, boysenberry, and ripe raspberry.  Hints of caraway, anise seeds, and cocoa complete the picture.  The wine is full, soft and mouth filling, whilst still retaining those fresh berry flavors in the mouth.  The finish is very soft with lingering flavors of cherry juice and a hint of cinnamon.
