Steele

2016 'Stymie Founder's Reserve' Lake County Merlot

Merlot • Stymie Bench Vineyard

California: Lake County

A “Cab lovers’ Merlot”, plump, luscious, built like a brick house… buckets of fruit upon fruit, piles of sweet tobacco, a nice dose of vanilla, and a pinch of nutmeg. Concentrated, rich, expansive, just so immensely satisfying we really don’t know what else to say… this one utterly blew us away.
