2014 PULL Merlot
Merlot as a variety possesses a virtual myriad of personalities. Our style utilizes its strength through purity of fruit. Immediately on the nose blueberries and raspberries abound. The subtle, smoky oak lingers in the background with hints of anise sneaking through. The bouquet alone leaves you eager for more and the palate does not disappoint. Oak is evident but only used in a supporting role so not to take the spotlight off the flavors. It exhibits “juiciness” of fruit with mouth watering red berries dominating. The tannins are soft but make their presence known, providing a clean finish to support the great length of flavor.
