    Winemaker's Notes:

    Frei Brothers Reserve Merlot is produced in a gentle, traditional style enhanced by the use of modern techniques, to produce a wine that represents the Dry Creek Valley terroir. The grapes for Frei Brothers Reserve's Merlot are de-stemmed, but not crushed, to retain a significant portion of whole berries for fermentation. This technique produces more concentrated dark fruit flavors. After fermentation, 100% of the wine completes malolactic fermentation to soften the acids and to add complexity.

    This is a medium-bodied wine that exhibits flavors of blackberry and cherry with hints of vanilla and spices from partial oak barrel aging.

    "Lush nose of blueberry and briar. Intense, youthful flavors of blueberry and blackberry accented by a pretty white pepper note. A subtle cocoa aspect graces the fruity close."
