San Simeon Merlot, Paso Robles, 2015

Estate reserve. Family owned since 1917. Located near the coastal town of San Simeon, our family's estare vineyards are focused within Paso Robles appellation. San Simeon Merlot is grown in our steep hillside vineyard named quarry heights. This artisan wine is hand-crafted in small lots. It gains vanilla and spice aromas from aging in primarily french oak barrels for at least 18 months. Dark berry and black plum notes pair well with grilled pork, braised meats and cheeses. - Anthony Riboli & Armaud Debons, Winemakers.
