Carmenet Merlot California 2001

Winemaker's Notes:

For over 25 years, Carmenet Winery has scouted the vineyards of California to harvest the ideal grapes for our wines. From the rugged, windy North Coast to the rolling valleys of the Central coast, they seek grapes that stand up to their legacy of crafting complex flavored and deeply fragrant wines. At Carmenet, they draw on classic varietals and traditional winemaking techniques to offer distinctive, varietal wines. Bright, fragrant, and intensely flavored, each wine can be savored alone or paired easily with today's cuisines.Carmenet's signature wine is inspired by the land and the vine. They believe that quality begins in the vineyard. It springs from the alchemy between soil and season. Each year brings new crops with their own, distinct character-and each year, they carefully blend and craft each wine to showcase its true nature. Their signature wines are crafted in the passionate tradition of generations of old world winemakers. Classic winemaking techniques-malolactic fermentation, barrel aging, and cellaring-bring forth the natural, rich character of the fruit. The resulting wines are drier, brighter, lush and fruity.A Merlot for the dinner table, the supple '01 Carmenet drinks exceptionally easy; ripe, round, and relaxed; pair with traditional beef stew and serve with fresh egg noodles.
