- Cupcake Merlot 750ml
Moderated by the Pacific Ocean, the unique topography and climate of the sun-drenched Central Coast produces world-class wines. The Merlot grapes are cool fermented for a slow process that retains aroma and complexity. A regimen of pump-overs extracts soft tannins and color, and grape skins are pressed before reaching dryness to preserve a lush tannin structure. Aging in American oak barrels adds more richness and complexity.
