Merlot Grape Variety
The majority of Merlot is grown in its native France, with the United States coming in second, followed by Spain and Italy. The best Merlot is said to grow in vineyards with struggling hillside vines. Flavors of raspberry chocolate, sugar plum, black berry and cedar.
Because of its unique ability to add softness and fruit to a wine, Merlot grape is often used to blend with other grapes, especially Cabernet Sauvignon to produce some of the finest wines in the world. However, since its arrival in America, the winemakers particularly in the California’s Napa Valley often make wines using 100% Merlot grape.
Stimson Estate Cellars
Intense varietal flavor crafted from ripe, flavorful grapes. Stimson Estate Cellars’ vineyards in Washington State share the same great terroir as the rest of the Ste. Michelle Wine Estates Washington portfolio. Long, sunny days with cool nights during the growing season create ideal conditions that produce grapes with intense aromas and flavors. The Stimson Estate Cellars family includes Chardonnay, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon.
Eastern Washington experiences less precipitation due to the surrounding Cascade mountain range. The lower temperatures delay ripening and help to retain fresh fruit aromatics and mouthwatering acidity.
