Our 2015 Iconoclast Merlot is a blend from three of our long-term vineyards. The grapes were harvested over a three week period and aged in a combination of French and American oak barrels, as well as being tank aged. The fruit from these vineyards displays concentrated flavors of red berry and underlying rich brown spice. When bottled, the wines was allowed to rest prior to release to help it over come any bottle shock that may have occurred.

On the nose, the Iconoclast Merlot exhibits mild wood and violets which then opens up to deep notes of dark cherry and chocolate. Lush and pliant on the front palate, this wine then displays concentrated flavors of dark cherry fruit and chocolate coffee hints. Exotic notes of toasted spice finish with a rich and firm tannin structure. This rich, fully mature wine also comes across as fruit driven with a very mature palette. Drink now, or hold for 4-7 years as it continues to gain bottle maturity.
