2005 Merlot 750

2005 Merlot 750

TASTING NOTES

Now in its second decade, this wonderfully rustic yet balanced Merlot provides a very special window into Seavey's terroir. The lush nose of cherry, cedar and loam gives way to roasted herb flavors, red currant, clove spice, and dark chocolate. The finish is long and rich, with smooth and integrated tannins.

VINEYARD NOTES

Seavey's 12th estate-produced Merlot, the 2005, was made from grapes that came from vines planted in several different locations of the south-facing hillside vineyard. Mild weather conditions during the long growing season avoided stressing the ripening fruit.

PRODUCTION NOTES

Winemaking style followed classic Bordeaux methods. In the winery, the grapes were sorted, destemmed and gently lifted into small tanks for fermentation. Following fermentation, the wine was aged in French oak barrels (40% new oak) for 18 months before bottling in May 2007.
