Pride Mountain Vineyards Merlot 2011

Pride Mountain Vineyards Merlot 2011

Sku: 015376

Typically blended with 10% Cabernet Sauvignon to provide framing for this gentle giant, our Merlot packs concentrated flavors and aromas of currant and cassis, spicy mocha, and vanilla bean. The entire palate is coated with sweet and chewy tannins that melt into a long rewarding finish.

 Wine Advocate 87 points (Oct 2013)
The 2011 Merlot, a blend of 93% Merlot and 7% Cabernet Sauvignon aged 18 months in 40% new French oak, exhibits soft berry fruit, white chocolate and espresso bean notes along with elegant, medium-bodied flavors. While it does not possess the depth of a great vintage, it performs well displaying excellent purity and ripeness. Drink it over the next 5-6 years.

Wine maker notes
Built more like a Cabernet Sauvignon than a Merlot, this powerhouse vintage of 100% Merlot is as firm and extracted as can be, with an amazing concentration of color, ripe black fruit flavors and aromas. Currant and cassis, cocoa and espresso bean elements are jam-packed into this gentle giant, coating the entire palate with soft chewy tannins that melt away in a two-minute long finish.
