Maddalena Merlot offers aromas of ripe fruit and oak spice with hints of vanilla and anise. Ripe fruit flavors include bright plum and raspberry. Fruit flavors greet the palate and soft tannins frame the fresh texture that coats the mouth. Quality begins in the vineyards. The Riboli Family established estate vineyards in Paso Robles in order to ensure the ultimate level of grape quality. The Paso Robles appellation of San Luis Obispo County provides a dry climate with warm days and cool nights. Fully mature grapes concentrate ripe flavors and aromas.
