Preparing for Fall with our 2011 Merlot Estate.

We here at Laurel Lake Vineyards are gearing up for the busy Fall season, and we hope you all are too! We’re bottling new wines, cleaning the tasting room with vigor, and doing extra push-ups in preparation.

Autumn has always been lovely out here, but with the amazing abundance of new wineries, restaurants and breweries, we’re seeing an explosion of activity that we’ve never really seen before. Even though it hasn’t been an oppressive summer (quite mild actually) some nice cooler Fall weather is always welcome.

We recently rolled out our 2011 Merlot Estate which has always been a favorite of our loyal patrons, and should continue to be with newer visitors as well. It’s fruity and intense, but not enough to alienate our trusty fans. Our winemaker Juan has truly blessed us with a new soon-to-be classic, come down and try some!
