MERLOT

Sonoma County
2012

Jackson Estate – Family Owned Since 1982

Family Owned. Artisan Quality. Our Merlot features black cherry and Santa Rosa plum flavors, a hint of spice and anise, complemented by currant and wild berry. Concentrated mineral and earth tones are indicative of the mountain soil and climate of Sonoma County. The wine was aged in French and American oak barrels. This serious Merlot stands apart.

**

Extreme minerality with surprising tang and tannin. Less pleasant than expected an uncharacteristic of usually fruit-forward merlots.
