2016 Merlot
Hidden Oak Vineyard

2016 Merlot
As many of you know, Steve has been wanting to make a single varietal Merlot as he’s always felt that it has become an underappreciated varietal. We’ve always loved what it has done as a blending grape and we’ve found some phenomenal barrels when tasting through our wines during the aging process. When blending our 2016 vintage, he found four standout barrels from Hidden Oak Vineyard and decided to make a single varietal Merlot for the first time. This wine begins with a beautiful garnet color which leads to aromas of cranberry and earthy notes. As you let this wine open up in your glass, you’ll find flavors of pomegranate, red raspberry and notes of toasted oak! The complexity of this wine will continue to develop in bottle and it will age beautifully – if you can wait!
