The growing season made flattering Merlot—perfect for early drinking, yet also
capable of cellaring. Our 2016 vintage shows delightful aromas of warm blackberry
pie and lavender along with nuances of earth and mushrooms, reminiscent of
Chanterelles and Morels sautéed in butter.
Our 2016 Huge Bear Merlot complements a wide range of cuisines, from more
subtle flavors to more pronounced, due to its versatile nature. Its classic dark fruit
flavors and round texture pair well with charcuterie, pastas with red sauce and
roasted poultry and meats.
Produced using traditional methods, the wine was fermented in a small lot, open top
fermenter and punched down three times daily for 20 days. It was barrel aged for
twenty months in 75% new French oak.
