Gemme Cellars 2019 Lodi Merlot
Our 2019 Gemme Cellars Merlot was made with sustainably farmed grapes from Lodi.
This wine benefited from a long maceration to increase extraction. It has a dense color and a powerful nose that highlights fruity components like cherry, blackberry and black currant. The aromas gain considerable intensity in the finish. The alcohol is fairly high at 14.5%, but it is balanced by the fruity attack. Grape tannins are present in the mid-palate and linger to the finish. There is no oak influence in this wine, so the bright fruits truly shine. There are also notes of dry herbs, spices and smoke in the finish.
