2019 Forever Miss America Merlot
West Paso Robles Estate
The 2019 Estate Merlot vintage rivals the most time-honored St. Emilion Grand Crus in luxurious depth and complexity and exceeds all expectations of natural, dry-farmed viticultural expertise. Deep ruby in color, the wine needs no coaxing to unfurl fragrant perfume of violet, chocolate covered cherries, crushed blueberries and eucalyptus over char-grilled meat. Full-bodied with solid foundation of firm, ripe tannins and seamless freshness interknit with forest floor, black fruit and minerally layers finishing long and decadent.
