Hightower Cellars Merlot
Our Merlot is a wonderful expression of a cool vintage (one of the coolest on record) from a warm site and also an excellent example of the winemakers craft as this was a difficult vintage for some - people are calling it the winemakers vintage because it is more difficult to make a great wine in a really cool year. While it did take us longer to put this blend together than in past years, we are both very pleased with the final blend. This wine brings out the best of the vintage - sultry dark color, bright, beautiful, bold dried cherry flavors of Merlot supported by the healthy acid structure of the vintage and by the dark berry, herbal, back bone of the Cabernet Sauvignon, the spice of the Cabernet Franc and the touch of brooding intensity of the 1% of Malbec all built on the classic, layered minerality of Red Mountain fruit. This is an excellent food wine that tastes even better the day after it is opened. This wine is unfined and unfiltered, so don't be surprised (or worried) if you find sediment.

Bottle Size: .750
