Benziger Merlot, Sonoma County, Vintage 2005

Family winery. Farming for Flavors. For more than 25 years, our family has sought to capture the spirit and diversity of Sonoma County in handcrafted wines displaying authentic vineyard character. Through our sustainable agriculture program - Farming for Flavors - we cultivate intensely flavorful grapes with great respect for nature. We do this by reducing artificial inputs, creating soil vitality and increasing biodiversity in and around the vineyards. In this Merlot, that means a wine rich with notes of blueberry and pepper with soft tannins adding to the round mouthfeel. You can learn about our sustainable practices and awards on our website. Better yet, come to our Sonoma Mountain Me, the special place we call home. Alcohol 13.5% by volume.
