Profile

Smell

Ripe raspberries, fresh cherries, and red plum are at the forefront of this aromatic red, along with hints of chocolate-covered strawberries, liquorice, and faint savoury notes reminiscent of dry hay and toasted oak.

Taste

Plush and soft on the medium-bodied palate, the Sand Point Merlot captures everything we love about this often-overlooked grape. The tannins are developed and soft, the fruit flavours are juicy and ripe, and the finish is long and dry, with enough bright acidity to keep everything lively. A great example of the style that perfectly captures Merlot's many charms.

Pairing

Merlot is famously versatile with food, but we love this with a herb-crusted port tenderloin or a mushroom and zucchini flatbread.

Aromas and Flavours

Strawberry

A sweet, almost caramel-like aroma reminiscent of your favourite juicy, red berry.

Cherry

Fresh B.C. cherries out of the back of a truck, all eaten before you can get them home!

Raspberry

Tangy or sweet, juicy or tart: more sophisticated than a strawberry, but just as lush.

Plum

Sweet, fruity and sensual, similar stone fruit aromas to a peach, but without the 'fuzziness.'

Chocolate

From milk to dark chocolate, this aroma is irresistible, just like that bar hidden in your drawer.

Description

Sand Point Merlot is from a collection of single-variety wines from LangeTwins, named after twin brothers Brad and Randall Lange. The Lange name has deep roots in Lodi wine-making; Brad and Randall are the fourth generation of grapegrowers. Joined now by the 5th generation of the family, the LangeTwins commitment to sustainability and high-quality wines continues unabated.

The Sand Point label was born out of an environmental restoration project focused on a seven acre parcel of land along the Mokelumne river, near the family ranch. After nurturing mature oak trees, planting the land with native bush and grass species, and restoring habitat for nesting wood ducks, the family realized that their vineyards could exist side by side in harmony with the region's original natural landscape. The Sand Point wines are all Certified Green under the strict standards set forth by the Lodi Rules for Sustainable Winegrowing. Enjoy this juicy, fruit-forward merlot at about 16 C over the next 2-3 years.
