Merlot

2021 Buccella Merlot

Our Merlot fruit comes from two blocks atop a knoll in the acclaimed Carneros appellation, where harvests typically yield less than two tons per acre. Influenced by the cooling effect of the Pacific Ocean, Carneros is an ideal spot for growing our distinctive Merlot. It’s a youthful wine that’s invitingly approachable, while still offering the richness and decadence we love.

IN THE GLASS

Our 2021 Merlot is elegant, silky and layered. Aromas of ripe plum, strawberry, raspberry jam and black cherry jump out of the glass and mingle with hints of cedar, clove, graphite and vanilla bean. An alluring mid palate is round and balanced by sweet red fruit, cocoa and a luscious savory finish. Soft, plush, juicy tannins create a textured palate, which will have you yearning for another sip. This is a definite “Cab lovers” Merlot that is approachable now and will lay down for 15 to 20 years.
