    Winemaker's Notes:

    Brass Tack Merlot is sourced from the California Central Coast, where high winds, dry days and cool ocean fogs create a long growing season, leading to full, forward fruit flavors and ideal acidity.

    This Merlot offers tasty red berry and ripe cherry fruit with hints of spice and vanilla from nicely integrated oak. Soft and supple tannins make it an ideal food companion.

    Let's get down to brass tacks, shall we? At Brass Tacks, we believe the essence of California wine is the fruit. So our winemaking starts in the vineyard, where we cultivate the unique characteristics of each varietal and vineyard. The result is a wine that isn't over-manipulated, allowing the personality of the fruit to shine through.

    brass tacks (noun) - the most fundamental considerations; essentials; realities (usually used in the phrase "get down to brass tacks").

    "Rich, full-flavored and fruit-forward; juicy with body and streamlined tannins. Nice, nuanced vanilla and a holiday pie melding of nutmeg, cinnamon and clove.

    Brass Tacks Central Coast Merlot - I tasted juicy cherry and black plum balanced with good acid and some spicy vanilla notes mixed in. Enough tannins to give a lingering finish. Nicely built wine. Good with red-friendly grilled meats or pasta.
