Clos Pegase Mitsuko's Vineyard Merlot 2016
Expressive aromas of red fruits, crushed raspberries with a touch of dried fennel. Deep red in the glass with crystal clear clarity. On the palate, the medium-bodied tannins complement the crisp acidity and savory undertones, as the big red fruit flavors wash across the palate. Finishing with generous expressions of blackcurrants, raspberries and a touch of plum with more subtle flavors of dried herbs, forest floor and crushed graphite.
Known for elegant wines that combine power and finesse, Carneros is set in the rolling hills that straddle the southernmost parts of both Sonoma and Napa counties. The cooling winds from the abutting San Pablo Bay, combined with lots of midday California sunshine, create an ideal environment for producing wines with a perfect balance of crisp acidity and well-ripened fruit.
