Little Frances Merlot 2019
Merlot is a lover's grape and this wine is aptly perfumed with roses and clove. A gentle tannin structure supports its bright purple fruit profile. Simultaneously offering friendly approachability and reserved power, this wine is guaranteed to win your heart.
Decanting recommended. Drink now to 2030.
Mohawk Trail Vineyard, in conversion to organics and mindfully farmed by Rick Dutra, is in the Redwood Valley sub-appellation of Mendocino County. It's about 15 minutes north of Ukiah on the western edge of the Russian River Valley. At 200m above sea level, the well draining iron-rich soils help maintain a perfect balance in these vines.
