2016 Merlot, Atlas Peak
We have been making Merlot for years. It is one of our favorite varietals on it's own and is very important when used in the blending process for other Bordeaux style wines. It is under appreciated in our opinion, and this wine is a perfect example of why.
It is light and smooth with yummy flavors of black cherry and raspberry, yet it displays a beautiful structure and subtle earthiness. It is so expressive of its mountain terroir that we had to bottle it as part of our Appellation Series. With medium tannin and not too much acidity, you'll find that this Merlot pairs well with many foods.
