Like a constellation in the night sky, these flavors gently reveal themselves one star at a time. Said The Sky is our homage to well-crafted Merlot. Sourced from several appellations including
Mendocino, Napa Valley and El Dorado County where long, even ripening occurs so we can pick at the peak of flavor development and deliver a wine that is characterized by richness, generosity and distinction. We believe this new offering to be a fantastic wine for by-the-glass opportunities and to showcase through select fine wine retailers who appreciate small lot, handcrafted wines of worth and value.
Merlot originated from the Bordeaux region of France. It typically produces a soft, medium-bodied red wine with juicy fruit flavors. A range of fresh flavors such as plums, cherries, blueberries and blackberries mixed with cocoa and blackpepper tones, often dominate this type of red wine. The tannin levels are typically lower than say a Cab and the fruit flavors are typically forward – making this a prime wine candidate for people that are just beginning to drink red wine. Merlot is often used to blend with other varietals, such as Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. Merlot is extremely versatile as a food wine pairing well with everything from poultry, red meat and pork, to pastas and salads.
