Mer Soleil Winery Monterey
Several different varieties are cultivated at this small vineyard and winery near Santa Lucia. The focus is mainly on the full-on Chardonnay which is stylish and powerful and possesses an excellent balance of ripe fruit and well-judged oak. The Wagner family also runs CAYMUS in the Napa Valley and supplies the fruit for an attractive, nutty Marsanne/Viognier blend under the TREANA label in partnership with Paso Robles grape growers the Hope family. The small range is completed by a number of single vineyard Pinot Noirs under the Belle Glos label and an unoaked Chardonnay, Silver. (DM)
