Lush and enticing, Mount Hope’s Merlot features soft, luscious textures, bright used of red ruby and deep garnet, and pronounced aromas of raspberry, black cherry and cocoa, with hints of violet, black spice and cola. The sophisticated balance between vibrant fruit flavors and deeper, dark berry notes creates a rich and beautifully structured palate. While the flavors are rich and persistent, it is still well-defined and well-balanced straight through its eloquent finish. Full-bodied and flavorful, this wine pairs well with food of equal intensity.
