Broadside Winery Central Coast Merlot
2020 vintage boasted exceptional quality fruit, albeit another year with a smaller harvest owing to the ongoing drought. Summer temperatures came on later in the year, leading to a longer ripening time, and more developed flavors.
Sourced from sustainably farmed, SIP certified vineyards in San Luis Obispo County, within the Santa Margarita Ranch AVA.
15 months in 14% New French barrels, the balance in neutral French barrels.
Flavors of black cherry cola, Italian plum, vanilla bean & sweet tobacco, with a hint of violet & cedar. The tannins are balanced and supple. It has a well-rounded acidity that keeps the flavors lingering just long enough to enjoy with any dish or on its own.
