2017 Highway 12 Merlot
Talk about a wine that over-delivers! Don't let the pricetag fool you. This beauty will knock your socks off from the nose to the finish. Weighty and bold, this Merlot was aged for 19 months in new and neutral oak. 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. Enjoy with grilled bone-in pork chops with cherry compote or Greek style lamb burgers with tangy, herbal tzatziki sauce and feta.
