The Ancient Peaks Merlot 2014 overflows with lush and intriguing flavors. The balance between fruits and woodland notes is both sophisticated and homey, making this the perfect bottle to serve at almost any occasion. The nose shows rich black and red fruit aromas, which are balanced by woodsy cedar, mocha, and eucalyptus. The palate shows black cherry, raspberry, vanilla, and brown spice. The texture of the wine is luxurious, with firm tannins and a worthy finish.

This red wine would pair nicely with dishes such as pan-seared duck breast and pasta with savory lamb ragu.
