2016 Highway 12 Merlot
This lush and inviting Merlot displays layers of black cherry, blueberry and plum, underscored by vanilla and mocha. On the palate, balanced acidity adds structure and elegance, while sturdy tannins carry the wine to a fruitful, concentrated and lengthy finish. Full-bodied and weighty, this wine will pair with the beautiful classic fall dishes like braised short ribs and game-day chili. It will be one of the favorite bottles on your table through the holidays and will cellar well for 5-7 years.
