Kimmel 2012 Merlot
Opulent fruit flavors and an almost thick texture make this Merlot delicious and dramatic. The aromas pop with blackberry and cherry, flavors resemble blueberry juice and the mouthfeel is rich and nicely tannic. From the "Bench" area of the Hillside Vineyard in Potter Valley, this is 100% Merlot is sustainably grown and is aged in both used and new French oak. The palate offers a warmth from the almost perfect growing season, finishing with a touch of fresh coffee, cinnamon and toffee.
