GAIL Pickberry Merlot 2018

Description

Pickberry is a 30-acre vineyard on the northeast slope of Sonoma Mountain near Glen Ellen, California. The site is a rolling hillside plot on volcanic soil. The climate is cool with warm days and cool nights. Initially planted to Chardonnay in 1982, our block was field budded to the Pickberry clone of Merlot in 1996 using cuttings from an adjacent block. This wine comes from firm, clay-based soils on the northern slopes of Sonoma Mountain, about 600′ above sea level .The wines massive structure coupled with Pickberry’s signature blue fruit and intense menthol notes are alive and well in this vintage. Cool nights provided fantastic tannin development in 2018, making this one of the most age-worthy wines we have ever made. (600 bottles produced) 13.9% alc.
