The Winery at Bull Run
The sandy soils of the Eastern Shore of Virginia, from where the Merlot grapes originated, make this a light-garnet colored, medium-bodied Merlot. The 2015 Merlot has a nose of campfire smoke, cloves, and light red fruit, followed by dark black cherry, and blackberry on the front-palate with a hint of vanilla on the mid-palate. The 2015 Merlot has balanced tannins that will pleasantly linger on the finish. Best through 2019.
