At Medlock Ames, we love to create fond memories. One way to do that is with a special wine from an older vintage. Library wines can be from a previous vintage or something that we’ve been storing in our cellar to share later. Either way, you’re always in for a treat. Cheers!
This wine perfectly typifies the unique Merlot that we produce from our vineyard. The classic descriptor that pops up every year is “iron fist in a velvet glove”, a delicate balance of smoothness and power. In the 2014, dark fruit predominates, backed up by a supporting cast of black & white pepper, and followed by a finish with notes of cocoa powder and tar.
Concentrated aromas of dark chocolate, vanilla, and black currant provide a welcome entry to this powerful Cabernet that shows notes of licorice, plum and a hint of slate and minerality on the palate. Lush, firm tannins round out the finish.
