2011 Ceja Vineyards Merlot Sonoma County Carneros
Vinum, Cantus, Amore translation Wine, Song, Love. Welcome to the wines of Ceja Vineyards. Tonight's wine was another club purchase, the 2011 Merlot. A mighty tasty wine I proclaim.
The nose is beautiful with aromas of luscious blackberry and ripe raspberries. A hint of plum with dark chocolate and spice.A true reflection of the magnificent fruit and vineyard which theses grapes were harvested and crushed.
The mouth is perfect on this wine. Juicy raspberry intertwined with dark berries, cocoa and spice. The wine is soft and elegant with the finish long and juicy. A wonderful expression of Merlot and ranks in my Top 5 all time!
Make plans to visit Ceja Vineyards tasting room located at 22989 Burndale Road, Sonoma CA to taste a diverse range of award winning wines. When you're finished treating your palate to their premium juice, wander next door to their sister business the Carneros Brewing Company for handcrafted beer. A great way to spend the afternoon.
