CAS_Merlot16NV

2019 Merlot

This Mer­lot is sourced from our Estate cer­ti­fied organ­ic Mer­lot vine­yards that are nes­tled in the Tem­ple­ton Gap Dis­trict of the Paso Rob­les AVA. Mer­lot is one of the main Bor­deaux vari­etals and grows well in Paso Rob­les. This is a great alter­na­tive to Caber­net Sauvi­gnon when you are look­ing for some­thing slight­ly soft­er with more ele­gance. The fruit is dark berries, the vanil­la oak is mod­er­ate, and the tan­nins are polished.

The 2019 Cas­toro Cel­lars Mer­lot is our first Mer­lot that has qual­i­fied for the CCOF cer­ti­fied made with organ­ic grapes” des­ig­na­tion. It uti­lized all organ­ic estate grapes from two blocks in the Tem­ple­ton Gap sub AVA; one block adjoins our tast­ing room and events cen­ter. This cool grow­ing area pro­duces out­stand­ing col­or and tan­nic struc­ture, not to men­tion true vari­etal char­ac­ter inter­wo­ven with black fruit. Har­vest­ed Octo­ber 17th, 100% of the wine was giv­en 12 months age in new and used oak barrels.
