MOOSE CANYON WINES – 2017

All Moose Canyon wines are $30/bottle, reduced to $24/bottle if a (mixed) case is purchased, or $8/glass to enjoy in the tasting room.  All are produced in limited quantities.  We bottle in September, release throughout the fall, and then are sold out before the next vintage is released.

Meritage– The 2017 Blend consists of 32% Cabernet Sauvignon, 27% Merlot, 23% Malbec and 18% Cabernet Franc.  This wine makes us think of chocolate covered cherries, with some almond overtones and red licorice on the finish.  Integrated tannins and medium body make this a wine to enjoy now, but it can benefit from being aged 3-24 months. 

MalbecLuscious chocolate-covered cherries join with vanilla, licorice and blackberry to bring you  a medium bodied wine with integrated tannins, rounded mouthfeel and a long finish.  We suggest you enjoy this wine with pork roast or lamb, or anything with melted Bleu cheese.  Drink this wine now, or set some aside to develop over the next 3-24 months. 

Merlot– Think of a blackberry cobbler.  Tons of fruit, soft tannins, you just want to hold it in your mouth and savor it.  Complex and enjoyable now, it will also be great in a year or two.  If you can wait that long!

Cabernet Sauvignon– Aromas and flavors of of black cherry and warm dark plums, joined by some savory dried herbs and cedar, in a full bodied wine.  The finish is long and smooth, and will make you wish you had a steak with roasted vegetables and a baked potato. This wine is enjoyable now, it benefits with aeration and decanting, and it will continue to develop over the next couple years as it smooths out.

Cabernet Franc – SOLD OUT
