Merriman Cummins Road Pinot Noir 2016

Merriman Cummins Road Pinot Noir is made from 100 percent Pinot Noir.

An aroma of Five Spice and strawberry jam, plums, wild cherry and a hint of white pepper on the front to mid-palate. A creamy texture and dusty rose petal round out the wine at the finish.

Our second label, The Cummins Road, is made from the fruit from the middle to the bottom of the vineyard ridge. Handpicked and sorted, the clusters are allowed to cold soak for 15 days before fermenting, in order to extract color and increase palate weight. The wine is racked off after fermentation into second and third year French oak barrels, which allows the wine to slowly gain a fuller, rounder palate.

Cummins Road is made up entirely of our Block Three Dijon Clone 777 that brings us an unctuous - yet approachable - wine. Block Three is situated right below the Pommard and Wadensvil plantings which always make up the Merriman Estate blend.

Traditionally, this block is the first harvest pick of the vintage. It always delivers a wonderful freshness that highlights the bright, red plum, cherry fruit characteristics of the 777 clone with lively acids that make this one of the funnest Pinot Noir buys to make the scene in quite a while!

Review:

"Ruby-red. A highly perfumed bouquet evokes ripe red fruits, exotic spices and potpourri, backed by subtle woodsmoke and incense notes. Sweet, seamless and focused on the palate, offering intense raspberry liqueur, spicecake and cola flavors that are lifted by a spine of juicy acidity. Delivers a solid punch but comes off lithe; a suave candied rose note drives the gently tannic finish. - Josh Raynolds"
