181 Lodi Merlot 2012 750ML

Free Mix & Match Case Shipping!

The 181 Merlot clone traces its origins to Pomerol in Bordeaux, where it was valued due to its suitability to the red clay soils of the region. Clay soil retains water well and stays cool longer in spring, thus delaying bud break which is a desired outcome for Merlot. The red soils of our Clay Station Vineyard in Lodi are similar to the red soils in Pomerol, making 181 the perfect clone to grow rich, luscious Merlot.

Tasting notes
181 Merlot is a lavish expression of classic Bordeaux-style Merlot, bursting with plush tannins and sumptuous notes of black cherry, vanilla, stone fruit and toast. Flavors of currant and spicy cedar end with a lingering, luxurious finish.

Technical notes
Alcohol: 14.5%

Food pairing
181 is a vivid complement to lamb kebabs, roast beef and hearty sauces.

Country: United States
