2009 MERLOT Pépé - SONOMA VALLEY, CAVEDALE VINEYARDS
This wine is named after Yannick's grandfather, Pépé, because Merlot is his favorite wine. He used to make it in his garage and share it with all the family.
Our Merlot is from the organically farmed Cavedale Vineyards located on the western slopes of Mount Veeder. It's a racy mountain wine with aromas of blueberries, blackberries and sweet spices. It has a bold structure and lingering velvety finish. A stand alone Merlot! It shows a French influence in its Bordeaux-like earthiness and delicacy.
Production: 2 barrels - 45 cases.
