2014 Merlot                                 

This old world Bordeaux style Merlot shows restraint with a backbone of acidity. In this medium-bodied wine, the nose presents an intriguing combination of sweet blackberries, violets, molasses and some deep savory notes. The palate has a good complexity of fruit, oak, earth, and spice. Its tannin firmness, combined with plenty of fruit, suggests good aging capabilities.

2015 Malbec

Summerland is proving to be a terroir sweet spot for the Malbec variety, with unique wines which stylistically resemble the Cahors region’s Malbec rather than the Argentinian ones.  The 2015 vintage showcases this incredibly well. Exploding aromas of violets and damson plum combined with notes of sea salt, black olives, and black pepper are carried harmoniously onto the palate where light, judicious use of oak serves as a background for this elegant, medium to full body wine.
