2014 Merlot Estate
The 2014 vintage of Estate Merlot benefitted from a long and even growing season creating a rich flavorful wine. The wine is dark red with purple hues glistening through on each swirl. The nose has a blend of aromas of fruit, spice and wood. The spice components are dominant with vanilla, nutmeg and clove accenting the mocha and cedar notes. The scent of pipe tobacco and root beer add complexity to the bouquet. With the first sip, the flavor and texture invite you to savor the wine. The wine is medium bodied and balanced showing fruit flavors of blueberry and plum with a hint of clove and pepper. The acidity and smooth tannins combine to create a lingering finish.
