Tin Barn Vineyards Merlot
Our Merlot features vibrant notes of wild cherry and chocolate accompanied by a bright acidity and lingering finish that makes this a particularly enticing wine. At Tin Barn Vineyards, we believe our Merlot is the perfect accompaniment to a dinner of beef or lamb and partners perfectly with an artisanal cheese platter or piece of fine chocolate. Our Merlot is crafted from fruit sourced from Pickberry Vineyards, a sprawling 30-acre family-run estate in Sonoma County, planted in the 1980’s in volcanic soil. The fruit grown for our Merlot at Pickberry Vineyards is subject to balmy days and cool nights - excellent conditions for this fine single-vineyard Merlot. With our Merlot, it is especially true that each bottle reflects the terroir of a single vineyard. Our Merlot is fermented in 25% new French Oak barrels and is a limited release of less than 100 cases - making this a truly unique find for the artisanal wine enthusiast. If you're looking for an elegant wine that showcases Winemaker, Michael Lancaster's goal of "making fabulous wine!" look no further than this wine.
