2017 Estate Selection Merlot
Lenz Estate Selection Merlot is made from ripe grapes harvested in mature vineyards. The characteristic flavor profile is deep and rich, full of black cherries and dark red plums, with plenty of soft-and-supple tannins. The final blend is carefully aseembled from individual barrel lots as the wine ages--ususally 85-90% merlot with some cabernet franc, malbec and petit verdot blended in. The wine is never filtered nor is it fined.
