Our 2018 Dark Horse Merlot is perfectly balanced with layers of ripe dark cherries and rich blackberries. Aromas of blue violet, toasted oak, mocha and brown spice rise out of the glass and lead to a long, plush finish. The grapes for this wine were selected from premier California vineyards by our Winemaker Beth Liston. In 2018, colder winter temperatures delayed budbreak about two weeks. In the spring, mild weather prolonged bloom time. For the first time in five years, harvest started in August instead of July. The red berries were harvested into November, marking an extended hang time that produced concentrated flavor and saturated color.

Ghost Pines Merlot is a smoothly textured red wine that’s highly approachable and easy to pair with food. Layers of black cherry, cocoa and a bit of sage lift from the glass. A smooth mid-palate reveals ripe notes of wild blackberry and Mission plum with hints of toasted mocha and clove. The tannins are plush and mouth-filling with a long, structured finish. Each lot of our Ghost Pines Merlot was fermented under a unique set of conditions designed to showcase the fruit’s outstanding quality. Some lots were cold soaked to amplify their fresh fruit flavors, while others were fermented at higher temperatures to encourage depth of structure and denser, more intense flavor characteristics in the finished wine. To ensure balance, lots with ripe seeds and soft skin tannins were macerated for an extra week post-fermentation for added breadth and mouthfeel. In all, our Merlot saw up to 18 months’ aging in French Oak, which contributed additional layers of aroma and flavor, including notes of sweet caramel and vanilla.
