Named for the weathered soils of the Piedmont. Attentive viticulture, good drainage and soil leeched of nutrients produce small vines with loose canopies and low yields.
Quaker Run Merlot stars in Eluvium, grown in both the West and East Blocks on the slope. From some of our oldest vines, this Merlot contributes density and aromatic purity; presence and persistence with fine grain tannin. Petit Verdot in the blend contributes structure, depth, and power, building a complete picture.
