2019 CHELSEA GOLDSCHMIDT SALMON’S LEAP DRY CREEK VALLEY MERLOT
Crafted to display a vineyard’s most prestigious characteristics, Chelsea Goldschmidt Merlot from Dry Creek Valley offers a tremendous value for this quality level. Nick Goldschmidt has decades of winemaking experience in Argentina, New Zealand, and California, creating the best possible wines from specially selected terroirs.
This Dry Creek Valley Merlot fruit comes from the Salmon’s Leap Vineyard. It’s known for water-retentive soils ideal for Merlot that provides sufficient hydration during hot summer months, controlling the vine’s vigorous growth for optimal fruit concentration. In the 2019 growing season, an ideal spring and summer followed by a mild autumn contributed to an extended hang time that preserved acidity and allowed for exceptional flavor development that carries into a surprisingly smooth finish for less than $25.
