Pepper Bridge 2019 Estate Vineyards Merlot
In the glass, the wine begins with floral qualities and sage—it is savory with prominent graphite. Red fruit abounds, lifted by baking spice, cocoa, and slight vanilla bean essence. On the palate, minerality leads and finishes the charge, while raspberry, bing cherry, a touch of mint, cedar, slight brine, and cocoa fill the middle—the approachable complexity will keep you exploring your glass again and again. The mouthfeel is full of supple tannins and acidity to live for years!
