Tasting NOTES

2012 Heritage Merlot
Estate Grown, Produced and Bottled
The Bundschu familys 150+year-old vineyard is located on the southwest
slopes of the Mayacamas Mountains, just 8 miles north of San Pablo Bay.
Steep southwest-facing hillsides of shallow, rocky soils of volcanic ash and
alluvial wash. Pervasive maritime breezes and long daylight exposure allow
fruit to develop intense concentration while retaining vibrant structure.
Two distinct blocks of merlot have consistently produced top lots with the
greatest complexity, concentration and balance. Beginning in 2010, the top
five barrels from these lots are selected for this distinctive bottling.
