Merlot

Certified Sustainable & Vegan

La Playa wines have always been farmed sustainably. Our early motivation in using these green practices was easy: Sustainable grapes yield the cleanest and more pure varietals.

Notes from the Winemaker

A pleasant garnet color. On the nose, plums, blackberries with hints of toasted oak.  The palate has pronounced blueberry with good balance and a soft finish.
