Description 

Cotes De Ciel Winery
Three separate clones of merlot were combined to create a wine of great complexity. The dominant clone (close to 50%) was originally grown on the famed Inglenook vineyard in Napa California. The other two clones ENTAV-INRA 348 and ENTA-INRA 181 are European in origin. Combined the three clones produce a fruit forward wine with complex flavors and intense but supple tannins. The wine was aged for 22 months in a 50/50 mix of new French Oak barrels and neutral wood barrels, resulting in additional notes from the oak that balance and compliment the intense fruit.


An alluring nose of berries and dark fruits is followed with mouthfilling cherries, and spices. The pallet is rich with dense but supple tannins and is followed by a lingering finish. A great choice to drink now or let age for a few years. 343 Cases Produced. 92 pts Wine Enthusiast.

Bottle Size: .750
