Our 2016 ultra-premium Mt. Veeder Estate Merlot is classically structured with a nose of sage and winter spice. It is pure and complex on the palate, showing olive, dark chocolate, brisket, and loads of dusty black fruit like ripe black cherries.
Wine Spectator – 93 points: Suave and sineway, featuring hints of pine in the aroma and flavors of dark currant, olive, and dried sage that are fine-meshed and lively. The minerally finish is pure-tasting, with notes of tar and spice. Drink now through 2025. 150 cases made.” — KM
