Montevina Winery was started in the Sierra foothills back in 1970, picking up where Prohibition left off. Their first wines were released in 1973, and Montevina quickly became known for robust, full-bodied red wines—especially Zinfandel and Barbera—which revived interest in the historic Amador wine region.
Today Montevina owns and manages 400 acres of estate vineyards, including several notable, old-vine vineyards. Their state-of-the art winery is spectacular.
This Merlot was sourced from several of California’s premier, cool climate, coastal
appellations. The fruit from the various vineyards was harvested in October.
Each fruit source brings its own unique characteristics to the wine and the final
blend enhance complexity, balance and varietal accuracy. The wine fermented for a week at 85 degrees Fahrenheit. After settling and racking, the wine was introduced to French and American oak influences,producing a smooth, easy drinking style of Merlot.
