Tasting Notes
Visual – The Merlot is a cross between scarlet and black and the bubbles pour dark red as well. With beautifully long legs this wine is bright, though impossible to see through, it is the darkest of the 2018 reds.

Nose – The nose has black currant, ripe cherry, leather backed up with notes of mushroom cocoa, dust and basil.

Taste – This wine is a perfect combination of fruit, acid and big round tannins. The fruits are a pure blend of grape, strawberry and blackberry jam and the tannins are smooth, elegant and add hints of vanilla and toasted oak. Enjoy this wine with beef, lamb, and anything with a rich BBQ sauce.

The Utah label represents our line of handcrafted wines make from grapes grown at the Twin Peaks Vineyard. The vineyard is located 5000′ above sea level on the eastern slope of Pine Valley Mountain, about 12 miles northwest of St. George, Utah. The elevation of this vineyard makes for warm days and cool nights, that when paired with the soils of ancient granite, decomposed lava rock an Navajo sandstone, makes for an exceptional grape growing location. We treat our Utah grapes the same way we do our Napa grapes, using the best techniques and live oak barrels to age these wines. These wines are always handcrafted and I design the steps that each wine will take with an eye toward bringing out the best qualities of each varietal. All while trying to stay true to our original version for what a Utah wine can be.
