2014 Merlot

This is a perfect example of how beautifully mountain fruit from this vineyard can evolve. Still quite youthful, the nose is dominated by blackberry, currants, and lingering notes of coffee. In the mouth, it is silky smooth and offers a soft, lingering finish. For wine lovers who insist on young, bold wines for satisfaction, do yourself a favor and spend a night with a bottle of this 2014 Merlot. It just might change your perspective on mature wines. 

"Complex aromas of black berry fruits, black stone fruits, chocolate, tobacco, spice and floral notes with a mineral overtone. On the palate the wine has a big silky mouth feel, well balanced, with flavors of berries, fruit, cocoa, cassis, and spice, and a long spicy finish." - Brix26

The 2014 is 100% Merlot. It is fermented and then aged in French oak—33% new—for 18 months before being bottled in the spring, then bottle-aged for an additional 18 months before release.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
The 2014 exhibits deep ruby color, with a bright, sweet, multi-layered nose of raspberries, currants, red plum and background notes of coffee and anise. This youthful wine benefits from aeration, revealing a lush mouthfeel and beautiful ripeness of fruit on the mid-palate. The wine has a solid backbone, true to its Spring Mountain origins, complemented by long, sweet tannins and a velvety finish. Truly an age-worthy wine, this Merlot would pair beautifully with rack of lamb, or boeuf bourguignon. Enjoy!

Had this agai recently. The 13 has always been my favorite of the last several vintages but this has now closed the gap. The key word in my notes is depth. Great fruit in wonderful balance, but it is the complex nose and deep savory slightly earthy elements and long finish that carry the day. This wine would do extremely well in a blind tasting of top bordeauxs.
