Clos Pegase Merlot 2016

750 mL bottle  |   VINTAGES#:  521567

From a large, single vineyard in cooler Carneros where moderate merlot often ripens well, this has a generous, floral, plummy, typical merlot nose of plum and blackberry with chocolate and some smoke from oak ageing. It is full bodied yet quite delicate and elegant with fine tannin. Very good definition here, with cab sauv and cab franc in the blend combining to add some tension. Score - 91.
