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
At Dark Horse Wine, we believe that fortune favours the bold. Winemaker Beth Liston marshals the best agricultural and winemaking resources from around the globe to deliver the unexpected: a bold wine that outperforms its price
In 2017, California had record rainfall of more than 35 inches in the N. Valley and more than 16 inches in the S. Valley. The rainfall filled lakes & reservoirs, recharged ground water, and flushed salts through saturated soils. Early growth was strong, and the vines were happy & healthy. Early spring was fairly mild, but then record heat was experienced in N. Valley, recording the hottest summer in nearly 40 years.
This wine is ideal for drinking now but can be kept for up to 2 years
