2016 Merriment - Basel Cellars Estate Winery
Our 2016 Merriment consists of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Malbec. The distinctive vineyards of Double Canyon, Les Collines, Phinny Hill and Wallula come together in this beautiful rendition of our flagship wine. The terroir of each vineyard block provides its own character, forming the unique identity of this wine. These different vineyard lots aged in 89% French oak, and 11% American oak for 20 months. The 16 most integrated and expressive barrels were selected and blended together prior to bottling. This wine matured in bottle for 14 months prior to release.
