2015 Merlot

Peterson Family Vineyard | Calistoga

This is what Merlot should be! Ripe aromas and flavors of red cherry and cassis coat the palate with a rich, round middle. A framework of soft tannin delivers a beautiful finish with hints of mocha. –  Bob Foley, Winemaker

The nose is a spicy graphite and licorice, brown spice and red plum. The palate entry is a supple black cherry with a rich core of garrigue, violet and soft notes of integrated brown spices. Beautiful texture throughout. Drink 2018-2027. –  Purely Domestic Wine Report | Volume 7.1, December 2018 – 94 points
