2014 Holden-Mapley Vineyard Merlot
Holden-Mapley Vineyard, Alexander Valley, CA
A single barrel of Merlot that was the unplanned finale of our 2014 harvest. Sourced from the family-owned Holden-Mapley Vineyard in Alexander Valley AVA along Chalk Hill Road, the grapes benefited from extended time on the vines, allowing them to develop the beautiful fruit and spice aromas for which Right Bank style wines are known. The wine was aged in a near-neutral barrel for a delicate oak influence. Very small hand made production with 264 bottles produced.
