De Loach Merlot, California, 2016

Heritage reserve. Family owned since 1975. At DeLoach Vineyards, we take great pride in our tri-fold heritage: as a pioneering winery, a family company with deep Burgundian roots, and stewards of the land that we leave for future generations. We strive to produce distinctive wines that spotlight unique terroirs in a socially and environmentally responsible way, practicing sustainable viticulture and minimally intrusive winemaking. Rich flavors of black cherry, blackberry, dusty chocolate, and vanilla oak complement the lush, soft texture that makes this varietal so irresistible. Wine Spirits: 2012 winery of the year.
