Rich and opulent, this deeply colored 2020 Patrimony Merlot offers a vibrant nose of redcurrants, raspberry, and Toschi cherries. These juicy red fruits transfer to the palate alongside savory notes of woodsmoke, tobacco, and baking spices nuanced by elegant undertones of dried fig and black pepper. Medium to full-bodied on the palate, this wine offers a super plush texture with ripe tannins and silky-fresh acidity. An impeccable synchronicity between aroma, flavor and texture.
- 94-96 Points, Robert Parker
The 2020 growing season began on a dry note, followed by much-needed rains in April that replenished the soils and set the stage for healthy canopy growth. Conditions through mid-summer remained mild and steady, with the exception of a rare August thunderstorm prior to harvest.
