Our 2016 Merlot offers enticing aromas of plum, cherry pits, menthol, dried flowers, while subtle mesquite excites the senses. But it is the silky textural pleasure in the mouth that grabs your attention, offering a seamless transition from start to finish. There is enough acidity to suggest great food pairing and long-term aging potential, but it will be hard to wait on this beauty. Flavors include chocolate covered cherries and earthy spices; what sets this rich and full wine apart, though, is the smoothness with which it caresses all corners of your mouth. No doubt, this wine will provide years of drinking pleasure.
The 2019 Merlot is very pretty in this vintage. Floral and spice notes give the Merlot a striking aromatic upper register that is both distinctive and alluring. Sweet red cherry, cinnamon and rose petal all build nicely in the glass. Best of all, the Pride Merlot will drink well right out of the gate.
The classic 2019 Merlot comes 70% from Napa County and 30% from Sonoma County. It offers more black cherry and darker fruits as well as Bordeaux-like notes of cedarwood, damp earth, and spice. Medium-bodied on the palate, nicely balanced, and textured, it has a firmer edge that's going to soften with a year or two of bottle age. It should drink nicely through 2029.
All sizes are 750ml unless otherwise stated.
