2016 Merlot

The 2016 Merlot is a beautiful showcase of the Sugarloaf Mountain vineyard with 100% of the Merlot coming from that site.  The wine has stunning aromas of cherry, plum, strawberry fruit leather and lifted notes of violet and nutmeg.  The palate is open, smooth and richly flavored with dried cherry, French plum, mission fig, sweet herbs and blackberry tart.  The tannins extend gently through the finish as the wine lingers with graceful notes of vanilla and spice.  Enjoy now through 2028.
