more about Merlot
Eagle & Rose Estate

2002 Merlot
Pope Valley

At the Eagle and Rose Estate, there are three vineyard blocks of Merlot. The fruit for this wine was chosen from the one particular block that produces grapes bursting with the scent of violets and rose petals. The fruit fermented for thirteen days on the skins, followed by a light press to retain the clarity and elegance of the wine. The wine was aged in one-year-old French barrels for 22 months.

This wine is soft, round and mouth filling. There are distinct aromas and flavors of strawberries and raspberries with a beautiful balance. The lingering, elegant finish leaves your mouth full of the rich plums, tobacco, chocolate, and roses. As the wine remains open, the layers continue to open up, giving each taste another nuance.
Enjoy this with grilled and braised dishes, pork, or pasta.
