Fruity and bold with great structure and notes of plum, espresso, and violets
This smooth and soft everyday Merlot is wonderful for just about any occasion, from social sips with friends or a glass with dinner. Its silky texture brings delicious notes of plums and black cherry, with a bit of freshly-ground espresso and a nice floral aroma to round out the flavors.
Consider the unique significance of a bird's nest. Though its hodgepodge appearance and construction typically comprise naturally unremarkable items like twigs, leaves and dirt, a nest’s presence in a vineyard is coveted by most farmers as evidence of something much more magnificent: Health, growth, and a flourishing ecosystem. A nest, after all, is a place for warmth. For love. For happy chirps, for first flights and for family. We created Nest to celebrate the comfort of home, the power of growth and the splendor of nature’s little miracles.
The grapes for this Merlot were harvested from vines planned 24 years ago in Sonoma Valley, California. After harvest, the grapes were fermented in a stainless-steel closed-top tank for 18 days. This wine was then aged in neutral French oak barrels for 8 months before bottling.
DID YOU KNOW? Merlot is the 2nd most planted grape variety in the world, and is an incredible blending grape when paired with Cabernet, giving it additional balance and smoothness.
