One is immediately struck with the rich, deep garnet color of the 2016 Norma Jeane Merlot. There is a nice intensity of aromas with fresh raspberries, plums, and hints of orange blossoms, orange zest, and sage.
The grapes were harvested from the “Estrella Triangle” in the heart of the Paso Robles appellation. The vineyard is sustainable farmed and is 16 years old.
We feel this is one of our nicest Norma Jeane Merlots to date.
