2015 Merriment, our flagship red, is comprised of the best barrels of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Malbec in our cellar. The unique vineyard sites from Gamache, Double Canyon, Chelle Den Millie, Wallula and Phinney Hill are being showcased in this high-tier blend. Each block brings its own identity and adds depth and complexity to this wine. All lots were matured in French and American oak for 20 months. Only the best barrels from each lot were used.
The intriguing nose shows expressive nuances of bright jammy fruits, herbal characteristics, hints of smoke, cured meat and tobacco. Subtle floral notes and hints of perfume are also present, and creates a beautiful accent on the bouquet.
The pleasing palate will reveal the fine integration between berry fruits and savory tones, lingering well through out the finish, making it complex and balanced. Ample tannin and balanced acidity adds structure, making this a great food wine. Our Merriment will be the highlight of your day, but will be even more special when paired with dishes such as ox tail, shepherd’s pie or a pear, bacon and blue cheese croissant.
