2019 Merlot Stags Leap District
While the Stags Leap District is widely recognized as one of the finest Cabernet Sauvignon locations in the world, Merlot also thrives in this region. Our Merlot is blended from our two extraordinary Merlot blocks. Often utilized as a blending component for its bright black cherry flavors and supple and round mid-palate, Merlot can also stand on its own in exceptional years. Raise a glass and enjoy the rise of this grape flying to new heights.
COLOR: Deep red with intense purple hue
AROMA: This wine shines with bright cherry and mocha notes with highlights of cocoa powder, vanilla and a hint of sage.
FLAVOR: This medium-bodied beauty shows the roundness which is typical of Merlot, yet demonstrates some power on the palate. It finishes with velvety tannins and a beautiful acidity.
