Opens with inviting cherry, blackberry and vanilla aromas. Black currant and caramel develop across the palate with subtle hints of tarragon and coffee. Juicy fruit supports the body and adds length to the mid palate, with smooth tannins that hold together for a nice finish.
Wine maker notes
Our Edna Valley Vineyard Merlot opens with aromas of cocoa powder, anise and black cherry, complemented by hints of leather and humidor. Fine tannins and a bright acidity create a rich, balanced mouthfeel.

Producer
Our home vineyard – Edna Valley Vineyard – lies about halfway between San Francisco and Los Angeles, along California’s pristine coastline. We may like to take things SLO here, but we’re serious about our wine. Amid the stunning scenery and the casual, laidback lifestyle of San Luis Obispo, a significant wine culture has quietly emerged over the past few decades. The region now home to Edna Valley Vineyard saw its first grapes planted in the days of the California missions. In the 1800s, it was believed that the grapes in this region were of the highest quality. By the 1970s, however, grape vines in the area had all but disappeared, until pioneering vineyard developer Jack Niven got word of the coveted fruit that once thrived here and began to plant his own grapes on what is now known as Edna Valley Vineyard. Today, Winemaker Josh Baker brings a passion for the Central Coast and the extraordinary expressions of flavor that come from this unsung region to offer balanced, elegant wines.
