The Rancheria 2014 Merlot is a blend of 92% Merlot and 8% Cabernet Sauvignon, produced from the Happy Canyon Vineyard estate in the Santa Ynez Valley of Santa Barbara County. Happy Canyon’s unique microclimate, soils, and special characteristics have made it a new frontier for Bordeaux varietals in California.
Velvety black in color with deep red hues, the Rancheria 2014 Merlot offers aromas of Royal cherries, cedar, blueberries, plum pits, dark chocolate, and hints of herbs. The palate is full bodied and brightly flavored with loads of fruit, nice soft tannins, and velvety, soft texture that begs to be paired with roasted or grilled meats.
