Wine Review: This 2014 Merlot from Mt. Brave is a big boy wine and you can tell right away why this wine’s release was held back. It is opaque and very dark ruby colored. It opens with a port like bouquet with hints of black cherry-cola. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, balanced and rich. The flavor profile is a blackberry and mineral blend with notes of oak. We also detected hints of black licorice towards the end. The finish is rather dry and its moderate tannins stick around for quite a while. The Panel suggested serving this hearty Merlot with a pot roast. Enjoy - KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: Flavors of dark chocolate and boysenberry, with great acidity and structure lift this wine on your palate. The long, steady finish exhibits why mountain Merlot stands alone.
