2016.2 Alpha, Merlot
We are pleased to announce the release of our first single-vineyard Merlot from Ciel du Cheval, one of the oldest and most prestige’s vineyards located within the Red Mountain AVA. Complex aromas of dark fruit followed by toasted caramel, worn leather and earthy notes, the wine has exceptional depth and a brilliant dark garnet hue. Pure and distinguished the wine is balanced, well-structured and lusciously rich with soft velvety tannins that offer enchanting fruit flavors. Refined, concentrated flavors of roasted plum and dark currant on the palette, the wine is accented by savory herbs and hints of earth while being soft and polished. The wine is opulent, with gracious tannins and captivating fruit that will age gracefully while continuing to develop for years to come.
