Description:
The 1999 Merlot from the Las Lomas Vineyard is the sixth year Casa Carneros has made wine from this hillside vineyard. On the edge of the hills of the northern Carneros region, Merlot ripens late and has enough hang time to develop full fruit flavor.

Raspberries and dark fruits show in the nose along with a lovely hint of exotic spice. A touch of French oak vanilla suports the luscious flavors that linger on the palate.

The hillside tannins of this structured wine have been softened by longer oak aging, giving this wine a soft, easy drinking character. Serve with grilled lamb or meats, barbequed chicken or a hearty pasta dish. Enjoy!
