2018 Alfaro 'Estate A' Merlot Santa Cruz Mountains

$24.95

A Syrah comprises from multiple vineyard blocks across our estate. Cool climate influence enhances white pepper and cigar box aromas. The palate has bright acidity and well integrated tannins. Elevage for 12 months in used French-oak.
This is a beautiful and darkly rich Syrah that has intense ripe fruit and exotic spiciness. It is lush with blackberry, pepper and spice, licorice flavors and smoky layers. Firm tannins and mouth- watering acidity combine for a long finish.
