ELEVEN Sonoma County Merlot 2017
ON A SCALE OF ONE TO TEN, THIS CANNONBALL DESERVES AN ELEVEN.
ELEVEN is considered a Master Number. A Master Number represents something well above and beyond the mundane. It connotes instinct, charisma, dynamic capability and an overwhelming desire to produce something extraordinary. These are the truths we channel in crafting the Cannonball ELEVEN wines.
ELEVEN Merlot was grown in the northern reach of the Russian River Valley and the southern end of the Dry Creek Valley. The Russian River Valley provides well-drained alluvial soils, yielding fruit that displays balance between concentration and elegance. The Dry Creek Valley is made of gravel and sandy loam soils, characterized by warm breezes, rich alluvium, and well-drained, visually stunning rocky red soils.
