Castle Rock Merlot, Central Coast, 2011

Est. 1994. Our Castle Rock Merlot is made from grapes grown in some of the finest vineyards in California's Central Coast region. Here, the warm sunshine and cooling ocean breezes provide an ideal climate, leading to an extended growing season and yielding wines with a characteristic depth of flavor. This elegant full-bodied wine has a deep ruby color, a velvety texture and aromas of herbs, cherries and plums. On the palate it combines complex flavors of cherries, blueberries and black pepper with moderate tannins, and it finishes long and harmoniously. In any season, our Castle Rock Merlot will complement most cuisines. It is an especially pleasing accompaniment to pastas, grilled and roasted meats, as well as an assortment of cheeses.
