Cannonball Merlot 2019


Cannonball Merlot 2019 from 8wines

SKU: 3979 Category:


Cellar for up to 5 years. No need to decant before serving. A bright ruby red hue immediately catches the eye while exuberant aromas of black cherries, sweet spices, and dark chocolate entice the senses. On the palate there’s a silky smooth texture, fine tannins and gentle structure which makes the Cannonball Merlot ideal to enjoy on its own or alongside a fine steak or pasta served with a rich tomato sauce. The grapes used to craft this wine are sourced from California’s Central Coast with fruit sourced from different areas to create a complex and multi-layered flavour profile. This diversity includes grapes from Monterey where foggy conditions help to preserve freshness, Livermore which boasts fine gravel soils, and Paso Robles which is typically blessed with hot and sunny summers. The grapes from each of these sub-zones are vinified separately and blended before being aged in French oak barrels. The curious name of this wine comes from the curled-up position that youngsters often take when jumping into water to make the biggest splash they can. The personality of this Merlot is fun and light-hearted just like the picture on the label, making it ideal to share during relaxed moments with family and friends.
