Lucas & Lewellen 2012 Merlot Los Alamos Valley

Produced from the Los Alamos Valley in Santa Barbara County, the Lucas & Lewellen 2012 Merlot is a pure expression of the vineyard’s sustainably farmed fruit. This wine is defined by its soft tannins, classic structure, and great texture, but it also has a stylish quality with its complexity of fruit flavors. Brilliant brick red in color, the Lucas & Lewellen 2012 Merlot offers lively, fruity, nutty aromas of blackberries, black cherry, potters clay, and nuts, with a dry, chewy palate that’s balanced by soft, fruity tannins and light oak on the finish.
