  • STORY

    One of the most exciting regions in California when it comes to low-intervention 'natural' growing and winemaking is Mendocino county. The Electric Eclectic Merlot is from Open Hand Ranch and is owned and farmed organically by Mark Roggero. The vineyard is nestled in a sanctuary of biodiversity just outside Hopland, California. The proximity to the Pacific Ocean allows the fruit to achieve ripeness at lower brix, giving us the ability to make a French-style cuvée with restraint.

  • TASTING NOTES

    The Electric Eclectic brings diaphanous yet fleshy portions. Bordelaise style with a lavished crème de menthe note reminiscent of Junior Mint candy at Quentin Tarantino's latest cinema. Blackberry fruit and eucalyptus with a silky approachable style. Electric Eclectic plays nicely in all culinary designations; serve it with a slight chill.
