Merlot 2013


One of Shadow Mountain Vineyards best selling red wines. A blend of 75% Merlot and 25% Cabernet Sauvignon grapes. Very fruity with cherry and blackberry flavors. Soft tannins from the 24 months aging in American oak barrels. Not a typical Merlot because the wine has personality.

Muscats Blanc


Two vineyard blocks planted by the 2nd generation founding family in 1982. The wine maker makes three different styles, from a crisp, dry table wine, perfect with spicy asain foods, a slightly sweet aperitif to a rich fortified dessert style.
