Don’t let the word Merlot on the label fool you, This is one Badass Wine!
The 2012 Mt. Brave Merlot is chock full of mountain fruit from Mt. Vedeer, which produces tiny berries with the type of concentrated and complex flavors that one would expect to find in a Napa Cab.
This is a well structured, full body, ruby color wine. It is loaded with blackberry, cassis and mocha flavors, that are nicely balanced with juicy acids and well rounded tannins on its long finish.
I really enjoyed this bottle and found it well worth its $65 price tag.
