These prime Livermore Valley vineyards were selected for the Nth Degree program because of their consistent production of exceptional fruit. The selected blocks were farmed to the Nth Degree, using a method we refer to as, ultra farming. The grapes were hand-harvested in the early morning into one ton bins, sorted, and then crushed into small stainless steel fermentors.

Fermentation started in small stainless steel tanks. The wine was then racked and barreled where malolactic fermentation was completed.

Showing a vibrant red colour, this Merlot has rich aromas of herbal tea, and black cherry married with vanilla that continue in the mouth with luscious tannins and mouth-filling fruit leading to a long, intense finish.
