Santa Rita Merlot Reserva
Wine Advocate 87 points (Dec 2012)
The 2010 Reserva Merlot was aged for eight months in American and French barrels. The nose is clean and nicely poised with ebullient cassis and blueberry aromas, the American oak lending a chocolate tincture. The palate is full-bodied with grippy, but ripe tannins on the entry. It displays good fruit intensity with licorice infused blackberry and boysenberry, the finish quite tannic with a note of white pepper on the aftertaste. Drink now-2015.
Wine maker notes
All vineyards are planted in vertical shoot position in order to obtain good sunlight exposure and airing. The crop is restricted to 7-8 ton/ha so as to get concentrated grapes. During the season, irrigation becomes a critical factor for this variety since it is very sensitive to water stress. The idea is to reduce water availability down to pea size to produce medium size berries and vigor control, then allowing the roots to feed the plant with enough water for good ripening, without any excess, while keeping a small growth of leaves at the tip of the shoots.
