2018 Estate Upright Merlot
Named as a spoof on an old classic movie about wine. This new version of Upright is now sourced from our Taylor Mag estate vineyard. Our Estate Merlot showcases both the beautiful flavors of this classical varietal and the distinct terroir from Red Mountain.

"The ‘Upright’ Merlot was sourced from the ‘Taylor Mag Vineyard’ on Red Mountain. Once on the nose this takes on ripe red cherry cordial, woven together with creosote, coffee grounds and shades of milk chocolate that all take shape in the glass. The palate is dense and chewy with gorgeous red and dark fruits with dark chocolate shavings, mocha and creosote tones. Delicious to savor right now in its glorious youth, this beautiful Merlot has at least another decade ahead of it."
