One Iron Meritage
Good viticulture and vineyard tending was a key to the long hang-time and full flavors achieved during the harvest. 54% Merlot from the Fichtenberg Vineyard and 46% Malbec from the famed Arrowhead Vineyard, both in Sonoma County, combined to make this wine delicious and ageworthy.
These beautiful grapes were hand-picked and sorted before gentle destemming and fermentation in small stainless steel tanks for a total maceration period of 28-35 days. After fermentation, the wine was racked to small, French and American oak barrels for 30 months to allow mellowing and complexity.
