Lending to smooth, food-friendly reds, Merlot is one of California’s leading varietals and America‘s second favorite behind Cabernet Sauvignon. The grapes for this wine come primarily from Mike Phillips’ Turner Ranch vineyard, and the balance from Dave Phillips’ Chesnut Vineyard - both near the Mokelumne River on the north side of Lodi. Initially produced as a blending option for our Bordeaux program, the quality of both these vineyards garnered attention from the family and winemakers, who decided a stand alone Merlot was a must have!

This lush and inviting 2021 Merlot displays enticing aromas of ripe red fruit and plum, complemented by French oak-inspired hints of cardamom. Layered flavors of blueberry and vanilla bean continue on the palate with silky tannins carrying the wine to a long, fruit-laden finish.
