MERLOT AND BEHOLD

California’s warm, gently cascading hillsides are some of the most coveted lands in all of the world for the cultivation of Merlot. The Golden State’s ability to consistently produce fleshy, intense and concentrated wines is simply remarkable, and each successive vintage seems to surpass the previous in quality.

A truly special place for wine-growing, California’s dry climate and sparse geology forces the Merlot roots to penetrate deep into the soil to look for water, and this struggle is reflected in the finished wine's electric, vivid fruit character and firm spine. Simple Merlot is textbook California terroir, displaying a sweet, dark fruit character and a round, creamy finish.
