Scooteney Flats Vineyard Merlot, 2018

Produced by Liberty Lake Wine Cellars

Our 2018 Merlot smells woodsy and smoky with a hint of leather. The wine's firm tannins make this Merlot heartier than past vintages. With a dark chocolate cherry taste and caramel chew mouth feel, the wine lingers on the finish.
