/ 2014 Merlot "Pico Creek"
SKU: 3091057

Our 2014 Pico Creek Merlot is a delicious rebuttal to those who deem this regal grape variety to be past its glory days. From the gorgeously dense color, to the exceptionally silky finish, this wine is rock solid. To keep aromatics in line with the structure, we bottled this wine bit younger than is typical. As with most juveniles, a little patience goes a long way. Initially upon opening the nose is a touch shy showing earthy mineral notes of flint and iron shavings. With some time the personality opens up to show ripe plum and sweet cranberry aromas. The elegant and contemplative structure carries flavors of dark stone fruits and wet earth. Supple but assertive Merlot tannin carries the flavors to a graceful finish. In its youth you may choose to decant this wine an hour before service.

Composition: 75% Merlot, 25% Petit Verdot

Cooperage: 75% neutral French oak, 25% once used Fench oak
