Cannonball Merlot 2019

America, California

The palate is focused but generous echoing the plum and cherry fruit evident on the nose and broadening scope to reveal a briar/boysenberry fruit profile showing a bit of the tanginess expected from red fruit and keeping the palate lively. A wonderful balance of earth tones with hints of graphite and mineral that add dimension to the fruit. The tannins are mild and a classic note of cherry stem brings appeal to the finish.

Winery Description

Cannonball Wine Company was founded in 2006 by longtime winemaker Dennis Hill and former attorney turned wine entrepreneur Yoav Gilat. Dennis is a Sonoma County native from a family with a long viticultural tradition in the region. The iconic label image of a child doing a ‘Cannonball’ refers to jumping into the water with your knees tucked into your chest in order to make a big splash and get your nearby friends as wet as possible.

The Cannonball name and label symbolize the uninhibited and pure spirit of a child having fun. This is the soul of Cannonball Wine Company: life - and wine - should befun! And it is exactly this pure and uninhibited spirit that animates Dennis and Yoav’s passion to produce honest, high quality wines at great prices that are fun to drink.

We hope a splash of Cannonball winewill make you smile like a big kid doing Cannonballs - and don’t forget to share a splash or two with yourfriends!
