Clos Pegase 2018 Merlot Napa Valley
Mitsuko's Vineyard is 365 acres in the Los Carneros appellation within the Napa Valley, showcasing a broad range of soil types, elevations, and slopes which create countless distinct microclimates. The vineyard receives ideal cooling breezes from the nearby San Pablo Bay which slow down the growing season and affords this Merlot depth and complexity.

Mr. Wonderful's Notes
Deep purple red in the glass with aromas of plums and a touch of anise. Full-bodied with plenty of depth this Merlot delivers copious dark fruit notes, black currants, briar and plum with a juicy mouthfeel. As the wine opens, more complex notes of bay leaf, clove and cedar start to develop. All this is surrounded by fine grain tannins that drive the finish.Taste
