Toasted Head Merlot 750ML
After crushing and de-stemming the fruit, we cold-soak the juice for 24 hours before inoculating it with a cultured yeast strain to begin fermentation. The juice is fermented in stainless steel tanks for seven to 10 days. Then we barrel age for 20 months in a combination of new and used American, French, and Hungarian oak barrels. Aromas of cinnamon, vanilla, and chocolate-dipped cherries give way to flavors of bing cherries, sweet anise, vanilla, and roasted coffee. The color is bright-to-dark ruby red. Pairs well with Spaghetti Bolognese, candlelight & a soft blanket.
