An aroma of Five Spice and strawberry jam, plums, wild cherry and a hint of white pepper on the front to mid-palate. A creamy texture and dusty rose petal round out the wine at the finish. Cummins Road is made up of grapes from the new south facing block #13. This block is planted entirely to the Pinot Noir clone Wädenswil, which traces its origin to Switzerland. The extra degrees of heat from the southern exposure ensure a nice, even ripeness, giving the wine its full character. Restrained use of French oak during the wine making process rounds out the palate and gives it a creamy mouthfeel. We are proud to produce this value-oriented wine completely from Merriman Vineyard fruit and to let it serve as an introduction to the vineyard.

Wine EnthusiastFrom Dijon clones, this shows dried cranberries and a touch of leather. The finish seems a bit attenuated also. Two bottles were tasted; the second a little less leathery, but with comparable fruit.
