As one of the coolest vineyards in our Estate program, Rector Creek benefits from a slightly longer growing season. The climate and the site’s rocky alluvial soils combine to produce Merlot known for its underlying blueberry and floral elements, velvety structure and refined character. These qualities are all on display, alongside red-fruit layers of cherry, red currant and rhubarb, as well as notes of leather, spearmint and spice.
