2015 Meeker Winemaker's Handprint Merlot | Sonoma County California 750ml

In the beginning, we put our handprints on these bottles so everyone would know it was a Meeker Merlot - big, fruit-forward, full-bodied, and with tannic structure for days. Now you know what kind of wine this is! But we keep handprinting because the bottles are just so darned gorgeous...
The 2015 Winemaker's Handprint is an age-worthy Merlot that exhibits refined structure and left-bank varietal character. This Handprint is anchored by a blend of two Merlot vineyards, one each from Alexander and Dry Creek Valleys. The balance that these two neighbor appellations creates is a core element to the success of this wine. The fruit from Dry Creek lends structure, volume, and rustic character. The fruit from Alexander Valley builds a wine that is elegant, complex and austere. They are better together than they are individually, and the 2015 vintage is another excellent example of the complexity they built together.
The nose features cherry pie and cola nut with notes of lavender and leather. On the palate this Merlot unfolds with deep structure wrapped around a core of blackberry and red earth giving way to toasted vanilla bean and a long, integrated finish. | Lucas Meeker for Meeker Wines
