Day 150 Drink: Wild Horse 2006 Merlot
Wild Horse Winery creates wines from 16 appellations and more than 40 vineyards from California's Central Coast. Winemakers Clay Brock and Chrissy Wittmann joined Wild Horse in recent years after serving at several other California wineries.
Wild Horse 2006 Merlot is from Paso Robles, Calif. It pours a bright garnet and has black cherry aromas. Nice dark fruit flavors, with blumb, cherry and cassis showing through. Nice wood base and just the right level of tannins to the overall wine.
