Record Family Wines

2010 Merlot

2010 Merlot

Winemaker Eric's Notes: 
A focused beam of raspberry and cherry fruit greets your palate on the forefront followed by flavors of ripe plums and toasted oak. This wine finishes with smooth balanced acidity and satisfying smooth lingering tannin. The fruit comes from the Record Family Vineyard located in the rolling hills of Northern San Luis Obispo County. We harvested the fruit between 25-26 Brix, it was then de-stemmed and fermented in small open top lots. The fermentation began with a cold soak with dry ice for 24 hours before inoculation with specialized vineyard isolate yeast. Dry ice helps to slow and protect the fermenting must allowing for a slow and cool fermentation. This method helps to promote a more floral fruit forward characteristic in the finished wine. After an extended maceration the wine is gently pressed to select French oak barrels to age for 18 months before bottle.
