Continuing the long line of drought years the 2014 Merlot has shone brightly right out of the gate. While yields decreased as the drought continued the overall quality continued to rise. It is a vicious double-edge sword to play with but we will take what we can get! The 2014 Merlot seems to be a combination of characteristics from the prior vintages. Bold and complex with deep flavors while providing a nice little “kick” to let you know it is there.
For the 5th release of Merlot from MTGA we couldn’t be happier with the end result!
