As is often the case with this particular variety, Merlot may be the dark horse of Boeger Winery.  The Merlot plantings are on our Estate vineyards, deliver an unassumingly delicious wine year in and year out, while a small amount of fruit from higher elevation vineyards contributes additional structure and color.  The nose offers rich, savory notes that are counterpointed by red fruit aromas, while the palate is full and inviting, with Merlot’s typically soft, rich tannins.
