2019 Central Coast Merlot SALVATOR MUNDI

Originating from our prime Santa Maria vineyard, this mediumbodied Merlot has developed a fruit-forward finish, with proper amounts of tannins and viscosity. The warm growing climate and French oak aging has given this Central Coast wine its concentrated structure.
