Red Mountain Merlot - 2018

Sale price Price $32.00 Regular price

After tasting through over 20 different wines on Red Mountain in the spring of 2018, this was the one that I had to have in our program.  For one, it was Merlot and I wanted the challenge, and two I just couldn’t stop thinking about it.  When the tasting concluded, I quickly walked over to the vineyard manager to vie for an acre of this fruit. We sourced almost 3 tons from this vineyard in 2018, and have been just as excited about it ever since in came through the door during harvest.  Bottled as 100% Red Mountain Merlot with a eloquent brush of new French oak(50% new, 50% used), this wine is delicate, balanced, refined, earthy and bright.
