Credia 2022 Lodi Merlot
One of the most prestigious wines in the world hails from Chateau Petrus. When I worked there, this wine was comprised of 95% Merlot, which brought sophistication and balance to the Bordeaux blend. Similarly, our Credia 2022 Merlot yields deep, ripe plum, blackberry and cherry aromas.
In a second nose, we have delicious notes of creamy milk chocolate, licorice and toasted oak. Our Home Winery agrees that this is the best vintage we have harvested from this sustainable Lodi vineyard. The mouth reveals young tannins which will mellow and round out over time. This Merlot exudes grace and power. It has medium structure in the mid-palate and great length in the finish. Acidity, tannins and alcohol blend together harmoniously.
