2014 Clos Pegase Mitsuko's Vineyard Merlot

Cherries, cinnamon and musk, like an expensive perfume, but better because you can drink it. Even if Merlot isn't your go-to, give this a swirl.

By Winemaker Robin Akhurst

Vintage: 2014

Varietal: Merlot

Appellation: Carneros

Composition: 100% Merlot

Mitsuko's Vineyard, named for the founder’s late wife, covers 365 rolling acres of the Los Carneros appellation within the Napa Valley. A broad range of soil types, elevations, slopes, and microclimates make up this distinct property. After examining the soil of the vineyard before planting, it was discovered that a section of the land was Haire clay-loam similar to the soils of Bordeaux’s Right Bank, a region famous for making some of the best Merlot in the world. This section of the vineyard was planted to a unique blend of Merlot clones well-suited to this climate.
