Assiduous 2021 Kells Vineyard Merlot (Santa Cruz Mountains)

Joyous aromas of cherry, dark strawberry and black plum are edged by flecked graphite and subtle cocoa on the nose of this bottling, whose freshness comes from 10 days of carbonic fermentation. Fresh red fruit and cherry-pie flavors are cut by cinnamon, sumac and wet slate on the stony palate. Matt Kettmann
