Tasting Notes
Plush, structured, focused, coating. The adjectives for this incredible vintage of Harris Merlot abound. Dark plum and violet aromas captivate the nose, followed by fleshy Santa Rosa plum, black cherry and spice flavors that envelop the palate.
Vineyard Notes
The 50-acre Harris Vineyard is located in western Oakville, just east of Branding Iron Vineyard. Nickel & Nickel’s five acres are comprised of two blocks that offer a southern exposure and soil of gravelly clay loam. Thinning passes allow each cluster to hang freely, optimizing the trellis system, and taking advantage of the warm climate to reach full maturity.
