Clos LaChance Estate Vineyards Merlot 2017

$17.99

Merlot has often been an afterthought in the wine world, comfortably sitting behind the main stay of Cabernet Sauvignon. At Clos LaChance we bring Merlot to the forefront and give it the attention and dedication that it deserves and longs for. The Central Coast of California is a premier growing region for varietals like Merlot that thrive in more moderate climates and cooler temperatures. Merlot’s original home, in the Bordeaux region of France, has cool nights and mild afternoon temperatures –much like the Central Coast. Aged in Premium French Oak the Clos LaChance Estate Merlot is medium bodied with bright fruit notes coupled with earthy undertones.
