The 2010 Cypress Vineyards Merlot presents a garnet red color of medium density with hues indicative of full maturation. Fruit aromas of cherry, raspberry and passionfruit are complemented by a bouquet of toasted oak and cocoa powder. A large portion of Malbec in the blend increases the fruit signature with a hibuscus character. The round texture and comfortable weight of this wine is followed by a sweet, mature finish. 2010 Cypress Vineyards Merlot would pair wonderfully with beef filets with a red wine sauce or barbecued ribs. This wine can be enjoyed in its youth or cellared up to five years.

Wine Fact Sheet: 

2010 Cypress Vineyards White Zinfandel

The windswept Cypress tree, the unmistakable signature plant of California’s coastal terrain, owes its gnarled appearance to the maritime air’s persistent movement either inland or seaward.  The ocean’s influence on the Central Coast winegrowing region is significant, keeping coastal and inland valleys refreshing cool, while preserving the grape’s natural acidity and flavor. Temperature is critical for development of fragrance, flavor and acidity – too little heat, and grapes rarely ripen, too much and the acidity, delicate and endearing qualities of the grape are lost.  For Cypress Vineyards White Zinfandel, the daily cooling air from the Pacific moves directly from Monterey Bay and down the Monterey appellations of the Salinas Valley, creating a White Zinfandel with delicate raspberry, strawberry and watermelon aromas and flavors matched with a crisp acidity.  Harvesting and pressing in the vineyard at night ensures the preservation of these bright fruit flavors.
