2016 Desert Ridge Merlot
1% Cabernet Sauvignon
There are places in our vineyards that show us something unique – where vine maturity, soil and climate combine to create something distinctly CedarCreek. We have 11 acres of Merlot planted at our Desert Ridge Vineyard in Osoyoos, but there are a few extra special rows. Maybe it’s the stony soil. Maybe it’s the unique aspect of the land. Or maybe it’s the exceptional drainage that makes the vines work a little harder. More likely a combination of all three, but each year Mother Nature, with more than a little help from us, gives us extraordinary Merlot from these rows.
