Dark Horse Merlot 2016
Robust, dark and jammy. Sophisticated flavor notes you wouldn't find in a traditional Merlot. Full-bodied, jammy fruit flavors. Toasted oak and warm spice. The only thing better than the perfect richness of braised short rib is the heavenly rush that comes when you follow it with a sip of Dark Horse Merlot. With big fruit and a long, plush finish, our Merlot unlocks new flavor levels in everything from red meats to stuffed mushrooms. It's a reminder of why the world first fell in love with Merlot way back when.
Wine EnthusiastThis full-bodied Merlot is blended with 7% Petit Verdot and 6% Teroldego. It tastes ripe and generous, but also grippy on the palate. Moderate tannins and good acidity give it some heft, while a deep black-cherry flavor and mild oak spice add interest.
