2006 Maclise Vineyards Merlot
from Coturri Winery
AmericanWinery.com is pleased to provide you with Winery-Direct information.
The Maclise Vineyards have gone through many changes over the years. It was originally planted to Cabernet Sauvignon, but the area it’s in was too cool. Gewürztraminer was next. It grew very well there but the varietal was out of favor. Then in 1993 Merlot was planted and it has done very well. The vineyards are located in an area called Sobre Vista; a cool region perfect for Merlot.
2005 was a great vintage, slightly cooler than 2004. The Maclise Merlot from this vintage is very deeply colored, silky, streamlined and focused. A ripe dry cherry nose, finely textured mid palate and smooth acid finish characterize this wine.
This wine will match well with grilled foods, marinated and grilled lamb, smoked eggplant or simply enjoyed with a nice triple cream brie and crusty sourdough bread.
