Eagle Peak Merlot

Eagle Peak Merlot

This Merlot has a deep, rich ruby color. Layered aromas of boysenberry and black plum are accented with notes of cocoa nib, black licorice, coffee and a suggestion of soy. Round, smooth tannins in this juicy, approachable Merlot complement flavors of blackberry and toast before a lingering finish.

    “Pure and fruity, this medium-bodied wine is super-smooth in texture, quietly flavorful and well balanced. The light acidity and mild tannins are well integrated and support delicious black-cherry and blueberry flavors perfectly.”
