Francis puts it best, saying the winery is “a wine wonderland, a park of pleasure where people of all ages can enjoy all the best things in life – food, wine, music, dancing, games, swimming and performances of all types. A place to celebrate the love of life.”
The 2010 "Director’s" Merlot offers powerfully ripe fruit flavors offset by supple tannins and a moderate display of spicy oak. Layered upon a soft, velvety texture are vibrant impressions of plums, wild berries, dark chocolate, sage and vanilla.
Even though Merlot is a sturdy grape that thrives in many environments, it must be harvested at precisely the right moment and finessed in the cellar so that it doesn’t become flabby or overly ripe in flavor. "Director’s" Merlot is made primarily from Clones 3 & 9, sourced from vineyards just at the edges of the fog line. Both of these clones offer intense fruit flavors. Clone 3 grapes contribute traditional plum flavors and lushness while Clone 9 is dense, deeply colored, and more tannic. When these selections are blended together, the result is a perfectly balanced Merlot, expressive on the palate and long on the finish.
