2012 Fault Line Magnitude 9 Meritage Blend
Tasting Notes Dark and ruby red in the glass, this Taylor Mountain Merlot is a classic. Complex and well structured with an earthy richness. Blackberry, ripe Bing cherry and a hint of white pepper on the palate . Finishing with velvety tannins and a hint of minerality, a Taylor Mountain Merlot signature. Great to pair with Lamb, Beef, Stews, Blue Cheese and Chocolate.
