Ancient Peaks 2013 Margarita Ranch Merlot
The 2013 Merlot opens with deep aromas of blueberry and plum with notes of cinnamon spice and cigar box. A rich, chewy texture unfolds with juicy flavors of black cherry, blackberry and cassis, followed by trailing notes of mint and toasty oak. Luscious acidity joins sleek tannins on a smooth, structured finish.
The juicy, full-bodied character of the 2013 Merlot appeals to boldly flavored fare, including pan-seared sirloin steak, rosemary pork tenderloin, roast duck and lamb chops with mint aioli.
