LONG SHADOWS Merlot 'Pedestal' 2014

The 2014 Long Shadows 'Pedestal' is a stunning effort from this incredible winery who teamed up with world renown oenologist and consultant Michel Rolland to make this wonderful blend of 81% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Cabernet, with the remainder Malbec and Petit Verdot. The wine was aged in 85% new French oak for 22 months prior to bottling and was primarily sourced from the Conner Lee Vineyard, while the Cabernet is sourced from the Tapteil Vineyard. It opens with aromatics of black tea, coffee grounds, milk chocolate and suggestions of candied red cherries. There are dense, concentrated flavors of black cherries, blackberry cobbler, black tea, anise and crème de cassis. The texture is absolutely gorgeous as the flavors continue to linger on and on. If approaching this young, it would be best to allow for least an hour of air contact. (Best 2017-2035) - November, 2016 (OB)
