Product Details

Red Wine

Dark Horse (n): The unexpected winner.
For us, winning means bringing you exceptionally crafted and well-balanced wine that overdelivers on your expectations. We do this by working side-by-side with 400 of California's finest grape growers to earn the first pick of their harvest. And, we taste our wine over 100 times before you pour your first glass.
The Result? A medium-bodied Merlot with notes of dark berry and a layered finish.
Cheers,
Beth Liston

Regional Information

2018 was a slow start due to a cold winter & spring resulting in bud break coming 2 weeks later. A mild spring resulted in slower growth & extended bloom time. First time in 5 years, harvest started in August not July. White grapes held acid well & developed very nice fruit flavours. Red grape harvest had a slow start & continued into November. This vintage will be remembered for the extensive hang time resulting in deep colour, nice flavour development, & concentrated fruit characteristics.

Vinification Details

The grapes for Dark Horse Merlot were harvested at optimum ripeness, which allowed for easy extraction of rich colour and velvety tannins. The winemaker selected aromatic yeast strains and employed a warm fermentation process, which has resulted in a wine with more flavour and fruitier aromatics. Proper storage after fermentation has helped to build complexity on the palate and bring a nice balance to the wine
