Bryn & Jeffrey at Ellsworth wanted to make a Merlot blend that was much lighter and prettier than most would expect from the varietals grown here in California. They hand harvested Merlot for 2/3’s of the blend from an old organically farmed vineyard in Dobbins, CA, and the remaining 1/3 is from their home vineyard in Penn Valley, CA.
A light, crunchy red wine full of red berry fruit and great spice that drinks like a heady Beaujolais.
