2017 Old Vines Merlot
“Old Vines Merlot is a tribute to the two founding vineyards out here on Red Mountain, coming from 1970s plantings at Kiona Estate and Ciel du Cheval,” says Will. The age of the vines gives a wine that is more Old World in style, where the fruit is a bit more subtle, making it a great wine to pair with food. We are finding aromas of cedar, tobacco, and ripe blackberries, with fine-grained tannins and blue fruits on the palate. “This is what Merlot can be when you have the perfect grapes to make it with,” adds Charlie. Drink now through 2027.
