Named for the Merlot-loving volcanic ash and andesite (a volcanic rock) of the vineyard, this remarkable value wine gains additional complexity and depth from the Malbec included in the blend. A rich, approachable and crowd-pleasing wine with smoky dark fruit wrapped in velvety tannins. Perfect for grilled lamb. 

Wine Profile

other notes

In the late 1960s, Jerry Lohr began an extensive investigation of California grape growing regions – searching for the ideal location for his first vineyard. Jerry was raised on a South Dakota farm; his agricultural roots armed him with an innate sense for the relationship between climate, soil, and location. His research and instincts led him to the Central Coast, an area just beginning to explore its potential for winegrowing.

tasting notes

This Merlot is dark in the glass, with lots of oak, vanilla and caramel aromas against a black-cherry and chocolate-cake backdrop on the nose. Soft and chalky tannins frame the sip, where blueberry, vanilla and chocolate-cream flavors prove lush and inviting.
