2007 Klipsun Merlot
Ideal Spring 2007 conditions lead into slightly lower but uneven Summer temperatures. Slightly cool, yet perfectly sunny and dry Fall weather allowed for flavor development, acid balance, and ripeness. 2007 is an excellent vintage for Merlot with balance to allow for a decade of aging.
The Motto of our 2007 Klipsun Merlot is "Go Big or Go...Bigger"! Our second Klipsun Vineyard-designate Merlot is the essence of Red Mountain with its intense, bold structure that still maintains a fruit-forwardness of complex briary, peppery, wild berry flavors.
This inky wine exudes rich aromas of vibrant black cherry, chocolate, cedar and herbs, balanced with spicy earthy notes. The full mouth explodes with black currant, dark berries, floral cassis, exotic spice and tannins. The lengthy finish is elegant with incense, vanilla and smoked charcuterie. This voluminous wine has character. With only 42 cases produced, this special wine is extremely limited & not to be missed!
Sharing our 2007 Klipsun Merlot on a special occasion with friends and family is the best way to enjoy it, perhaps with some blackened Prime Rib! For your next dinner party, enjoy a bottle or 2 with Coco Nib Crusted Petit Filet.
