Since 1977, Matanzas Creek has been known for finding the best areas to grow and produce Merlot. Alexander Valley makes an ideal location, with its windy mornings, warm afternoons and rich, volcanic soils. This Merlot showcases elegant structure with velvety notes of black cherry, blackberry and savory black licorice that lead to a long, smooth finish. Enjoy this wine now or age it for the next decade.
