2010 Merlot - Glacier Ridge Vineyards
Glacier Ridge Vineyards is a small, perfectly located and managed vineyard that lies along the eastern shore of Seneca Lake in the Finger Lakes region. This vineyard consistently produces fruit with intense color and complex, smoky flavors. Rich plum and blackberry in the palate give way to a remarkable and complex finish of dark plum with hints of vanilla and oak. Pair with bacon wrapped grilled pork tenderloin stuffed with chevre and blueberries.
Vinification of this Merlot is straightforward and traditional using ripe, gently crushed fruit, warm fermentations punched down frequently by hand, aging in a mix of new and older American oak barrels, and minimal racking and blending. The goal is to let the fruit express the structure, fruit and tannins that come from the vineyard.
2007 Vintage - Wine Spectator - 88 Points
