Winemaker Notes :

The 2016 Merlot is loaded with bold aromas of violets, dried cherries, toasty oak, and spice. This is a Merlot of depth and dimension on the palate, offering rich, layered black fruit flavors interwoven with nuances of blueberry, pomegranate, vanilla and sweet tobacco. A velvety texture is framed by sturdy yet supple tannins on the finish.

Blend: 88% Merlot, 12% Petite Sirah

Wine AdvocateWafting from the glass with notes of black cherries, cassis, fruitcake and mint, the 2016 Merlot from Ancient Peaks is full-bodied and velvety on the palate, with a generous core of savory fruit, powdery tannins and a long, flavorful finish. For the price, it's an incredible value.
