2014 Clos Pegase Mitsuko's Vineyard Merlot

An exotic and complex wine possessing aromas of blackberry liqueur, red fruits and wild violets.

story:

Mitsuko’s Vineyard, located south of Highway 121 in the cooler part of Napa Carneros, has an abundance of ideal sites for Merlot. This Merlot was harvested at night from the small knoll referred to as Graveyard Hill, the volcanic origin of which is revealed by the granite and obsidian gravel which studs the soil profile.
