MERLOT GOODNESS

Merlot benefits greatly from dry, sunny days that ensure proper ripeness, capped by cool nights that lock in the vital acidity needed for wine balance. The resulting wines are marked by their contrasts – richness and brightness, weight and suppleness, dark fruit and an elegant savory streak. This ability to produce refined, elegant wines makes for a natural pairing with all manner of cuisine.

With these stylistic goals in mind, Boldly Go Merlot features fine tannins, a layered midpalate and soft, rounded edges - a fine testament to what California can do with Merlot. Boldly Go celebrates its origins by transporting you to this very special place that the grapes call home.
