The Efeste Upright Merlot 2012 is a rich and velvety red wine. Made from grapes from the Klipsun Vineyard in the Red Mountain AVA, this wine reflects the quality of its terroir. The fruit was ripened to perfect flavor concentration and then picked and sorted by hand. The resulting red wine has presence, density, and is an excellent representation of the varietal. The bouquet is fruity, and the palate is rich and balanced. Enjoy this Merlot with a variety of dinner menus and good company.
