2014 Estate Merlot

2014 Estate Merlot
2014 Estate Merlot

Nose (aromas): black cherry, cocoa, spiced plum, warm toast
Flavor (palette): dark berry, green tobacco, vanilla bean, baking spices, acidity, soft tannins
Winemaker's Notes: Because of the marriage of red fruit, spice, and acidity in this Merlot, it pairs well with Mexican dishes, or even tomato based pastas with sausage and fennel. For warmer evenings, try chilling this wine for 10 minutes in the fridge, then immediately serve with your food! 
Ageing Potential: Now - 2030
Additional Info: When we planted Merlot in 1996, it was the “hottest” grape around. For many undeserved reasons, Merlot’s popularity plummeted for the last decade plus. But remember that Merlot has, and still does, make some of the most expensive and beautiful wines in the world. We intend to make Merlot great again!
