HORSE HEAVEN RESERVE MERLOT

ALDER RIDGE VINEYARD | 2015
 

DESCRIPTION   Merlot if the grape most responsible for the existence of Revelry Vintners. After years of tasting and enjoying wine with a raw interest, it was a singular experience with Merlot sourced merely miles from where we now grow our Merlot for this wine in the House Heaven Hills AVA that wholly grabbed our Winemaker, Jared Burns', attention. Merlot from these locations shows the variety in what we feel is its true light. 

With a round profile and a dense, saturated mid palate, this is a Merlot with a great deal of scale. The flavor profile is a beautiful sort of compote of fresh blackberries, marionberry, and blueberry over roasted vanilla meringue. This wine will age incredibly well for 10 yrs and beyond.
