2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot

2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot

$44.00

Wine Club Price: $39.60

An irresistible classic Bordeaux-style wine. A ripe and deep red blend with notes of mulberry, marscapone and hints of eucalyptus.

Our 2014 Cabernet/Merlot blend is a traditional Bordeaux style blend and delightfully balanced with 50% Reid Vineyard Merlot and 50% Moody Vineyard Cabernet. We consider both of the component wines to be among the very best available in the 2014 harvest, blended together to bring you the best of both worlds. An irresistible and elegant blend with ripe notes of mulberry and mascarpone. A juicy palate and supple tannic structure make the wine perfect for sipping at happy hour and pairing with a variety of foods. One of our favorite appetizer pairings is Gina’s Easy Olive and Roast Red Pepper Tapenade – a recipe included with every purchase.

Reid Vineyard Merlot has long been our flagship Merlot and while now equaled by new offerings from McKinley Springs and Elephant Mountain Vineyards, it continues to be one of the very best. The Moody Cabernet Sauvignon is now matching the Cab from Firethorn Vineyard, Bangsund Vineyard, and Hillside Vineyard for best-of-breed. With a pH of 3.81 and massive amounts of fruit this is a very pleasing and well-balanced wine. 20 months in neutral oak barrels, 304 cases bottled.
