2020 Corbeaux

This Old World style Merlot was named Corbeaux, French for crow or raven, in tribute to the crows that continuously populate our vineyard. This Bordeaux-inspired wine is a beautiful and complex red composed of 89% Estate Grown Merlot, 8% Temecula Valley Cabernet Franc, and 3% Temecula Valley Syrah.

Among the first to be harvested in the valley, the Luiseño Estate Vineyard was hand-picked and carefully sorted in the cooler evening hours to encourage the fruit to stay intact through harvest and the Brix to remain low. The skins remained in contact with the skins for 17 days to extract optimum color, tannin, and structure. Select oak aging resulted in restrained barrel impact that defined and lengthened the fruit on the palate. Its forward, bold characteristics are rounded out with a soft, long finish, typical of a Merlot, while the Cabernet Franc and Syrah add layers of complexity that will develop over time.
