Wine Basics — Grape Varietals 101: Merlot
Wine Basics — Grape Varietals 101: Aglianico
Paloma Vineyards sits atop Spring Mountain which is well known for its poor Volcanic soils but along this 20 acre plot is small amounts of clay. Merlot loves clay as it has higher water retention which can be vital in these mountain side vineyards. There is significant amounts of Cabernet Sauvignon in this glorious Merlot adding firm tannin and longevity complimented by dark fruit and a fine herbaceousness. Paloma Merlot is a big mouthful of classic Napa Mountain Merlot. Cocoa, dark plum and blackberry abound on full bodied and assertive palate.
Drink now through 2022.
