2012 Cypress Vineyards Merlot

PRODUCTION NOTES
The windswept Cypress tree, the unmistakable signature plant of California’s coastal terrain, owes its gnarled appearance to the maritime air’s persistent movement inland and seaward. The ocean’s influence on the Central Coast winegrowing region is significant, keeping coastal and inland valleys refreshingly cool at night, while preserving the grapes’ natural acidity and flavor. For Cypress Vineyards Merlot, the 2012 vintage followed a dry winter with rainfall totals just half of normal. The spring vine growth was supported by irrigation in April and May, followed by two months of summer without watering to ensure good tannin ripeness in the final wine. Our passionate commitment to Cypress Vineyards red wines is to preserve and showcase the great cherry and currant fruit flavors resplendent in grapes grown in the Central Coast.
