Crosby Merlot 2011
The grapes chosen for these wines are from select vineyard sites in Sonoma and Napa counties. The winemaking style is one of little intervention. No new oak is used (none at all in the Chardonnay) to allow the fruit and varietal characteristics of the wines to shine through. Both the merlot and chardonnay are clean, bright wines that pair well with a wide variety of foods.
100% Merlot. Vinted and bottled by Norton Ridge Wine Company, a winery inspired by the intersection of opportunity and creativity. Inspired and in collaboration with T. Edward Wines, these expressions of Chardonnay, Cabernet, and Merlot over deliver for their price point. Norton Ridge Wines are produced with a clear goal: to make straightforward, food-friendly wines. This goal is attained through a process that begins in the vineyard, where high-quality grapes provide a base for the wine.
