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: this wine has personality.
The 2017 Merlot was awarded a Silver Medal at the 2021 San Diego International Wine & Spirits Challenge at the San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition, and at the 2021 Dan Berger's International Wine Competition.
