Winery Tasting Notes


The 2006 Petaluma Coonawarra Merlot is a ripe fruit, structural wine typical of the excellent 2006 vintage. Bigger in dimension than some we have made, it has brooding dark fruit and lingering soft, sandy abundant tannins found only in the best low cropping Merlots from around the world.

Cellaring Potential

Over 2 years in bottle before release, the 2006 is approachable now, but as with all Petaluma Merlot wines since 1990, will reward careful cellaring over at least the next two decades.
