Another luscious, full, and rich Merlot that illustrates the full potential of the Ehlers terroir. A confluence of intense dark chocolate, red raspberry, a very subtle spearmint, and European black licorice, defines this vintage. The tannins are at once fine and chewy; and the bold, juicy structure of the wine is what has always made the Ehlers Merlot “a Merlot for Cabernet drinkers".
This is a wonderful wine with food, from roast chicken to steak to homemade lasagna.
Just 950 cases made. Drink now or hold up to 10 years.
This wine was recently featured in The California Wine Club's wine of the month club.
