William Hill Estate Winery Merlot 2021
The Central Coast Merlot displays aromas of blackberry, black cherry, and toasty oak that set the stage for dark fruit flavors of plum and black cherry, with subtle herbal notes. Hints of toasted oak, chocolate, and caramel give way to a smooth finish.
The best wines are crafted by winemakers who are intimately connected to their wines. Winemakers who stay close to the vineyard, who select their grapes by hand at the perfect moment of ripeness. Winemakers who taste their barrel selections and blend the individual lots together to create an exquisitely balanced wine. This is how Ralf Holdenried makes wines at the William Hill Estate Winery. And he wouldn't have it any other way. The Coastal Collection brings William Hill Estate Winery's style of rich, expressive wines beyond Napa to the hidden vineyards of the North Coast and the Central Coast.
