EFESTE 2019 Upright Merlot
Red Mountain AVA
Named as a spoof on an old classic movie about wine. This new version of Upright is now sourced from Taylor Mag Estate Vineyard. Our Estate Merlot showcases both the beautiful flavors of this classic varietal and the distinct terrior from Red Mountain. At first, you’ll notice scents of lighter rainier cherry, blackberry, and cherry. As you sip, there is a certain element of spice to this one as you get flavors of allspice and even cinnamon. This wine is all about the finish! The silty dust from Taylor Mag vineyard gives this wine the incredible length and mouthfeel that leaves you wanting more
Bringing back Merlot as a noble and respected variety, this wine is crafted with fruit from the distinctive Klipsun Vineyard. Deep and inviting, the nose offers roasted espresso bean, dark plum, blackberry, fresh tar, and licorice spice. The palate is rich and weighty, with plush, ripe tannins, heaps of nectarous fruit and a bright/spicy finish. Rated 91 points by Wine Spectator.
