2011 Upright Merlot, Red Mountain Washington

Merlot doesn’t like the heat, so the cool 2011 vintage provided ideal conditions to allow ripening at Klipsun Vineyard. Deep and inviting, the nose offers roasted espresso bean, dark plum, blackberry, fresh tar, and licorice spice. The palate is rich and weighty, with plush, ripe tannins, heaps of nectarous fruit and a bright/spicy finish. This bad boy can stand up the fattiest of protein and the richest of sauces. Decant before serving to allow it to breathe and fully show its potential.
