Introducing our 2020 Chasing Rain Merlot. Grown in the rich, fertile soil of the once hidden gem, Red Mountain.
Adversity reveals character and that is precisely the obstacle that Chasing Rain overcomes. As Red Mountain only receives 6-8 inches of rain per year, our wine stewards have a passion and hands on approach to applying the perfect amount of irrigation to our land. This allows us to consistently produce some of the best wines the world has to offer.
Grapes were delicately hand picked, destemmed and fermented on the skins for three weeks before being aged for 25 months in 25% New American Oak.
Blackberries and plums with savory herb on the nose and hints of dried earth and espresso bean. Broad and generous on the palate with pronounced savory notes on the mid palate. Framed by dense tannins, leading to a long, fruit driven finish.
Pair with a rack of lamb, roast veal, or filet mignon.
