occasio winery web founder's collection merlot 2011

We continue to be blessed by accolades, as today we learned our 2011 Merlot has been rated 91 points and named the Editor’s Choice for the September 2015 issue of the Wine Enthusiast Magazine. This comes on the heals of our Cabernet Sauvignon (90 points), which was the Editor’s Choice for the August issue of the same publication.

In awarding us 91 points, editor Jim Gordon writes, “An attractive array of cedar, cinnamon, red cherry and black currant aromas and flavors fill this medium-bodied wine to the rim. The acidity, tannins and flavors are all well proportioned and balance each other out in a sophisticated way. The result is an elegant but firm wine that will be appetizing at the table now through 2020.” Thanks, Jim, we couldn’t describe it better ourselves.
