2015 Soda Rock Merlot Smith Orchard Vineyard
Producer: Soda Rock Winery
Region: Dry Creek Valley, Sonoma County, California
Double Gold at the 2019 SF Chronicle Wine Competition!
The grapes were hand-harvested and fermented with native yeast. The resulting wine was aged for 30 months in French oak barrels and bottled unfined.
The winery writes, "The wine's complexity is apparent from the first whiff. Layered aromatics of dark cherry, boysenberry and black currant--threaded with spicy cedar notes--fuse with hints of oak. A silken entry offers the dark fruit found on the nose along with mouthwatering minerality, a contribution of this high-elevation vineyard. Traces of cigar box, brown spices, chocolate and eucalyptus add to the wine's depth and dimension. The solid structure again is thanks to the mountainside location of Smith Orchard Vineyard."
