3 Horse Ranch Vineyards

Merlot 3HRV EFH 2014

Merlot 3HRV EFH 2014

GOLD Medal (3 Barrels!) | continued=>

WOW! This superb 2014 vintage was “fantacular” at our barrel tasting last February. We knew it would promise to become and instant classic from our backdoor vineyards at the Ranch! This 100% Single-Vineyard Merlot is bolstered by prominent barrel tannins, ensuring its longevity in the cellar. This is a rare opportunity to own one of the smallest production single-vineyard Merlots in the Pacific Northwest. Just 76 cases were made of this elegant 2014 vintage. Pure fruit tones of blackberries, boysenberries, black currants, and plums coupled with vineyard nuances of earth, sun-dried tomatoes and wheatgrass. Get it, hold it, and open it for people that can appreciate a great wine from a good one! - Happy Holidays from @3HorseRanch ! πŸ€ πŸ·πŸπŸ‡

WINERY SPEC SHEET (pdf download): 3 Horse Ranch Vineyards

COMPOSITION: 100% Merlot, 3HRV-Single Vineyard. 14.2% ABV.

AGING: This wine gains complexity and pays dividends from cellaring. Drinks well 2018-2026.

VINTAGE 2014: The Eagle Foothills and surrounding Snake River Valley harvest was as close to ideal as it gets. The region enjoyed a nice warm summer with perfect diurnal swings (or night time cooling off temperatures) that allowed for picture perfect ripening conditions for whites and reds. An unusually long growing season started in the early Spring and extended into late Fall. Harvest began in mid-September for whites and ran through the very end of October for red varietals.

VINEYARDS: Single-Vineyard, 3 Horse Ranch Vineyards, Eagle Foothills AVA, Idaho

WINEMAKING: Greg Koenig, Consulting Winemaker. Fruit parcels from our Rhone varietal vineyards were vinified separately. After maceration and fermentation on skins, malolactic fermentation occurred during barrel maturation in a mix of new and old barriques - French, American and Hungarian in origin - for a period of 30 months. Bottled: Summer 2017.

CELLARS: Vinified, Cellared & Bottled in Koenig Winery, Caldwell Idaho (Snake River Valley)

CLOSURE: Traditional Cork

AUDIENCE: Winery Tasting Room Patrons, Wine Club Members across the USA, Fine Dining & Premier Hand-Sell Wine Shops in metropolitan Boise Idaho. This Wine is Not Distributred.

Shockinly delicious! Cannot believe it is only $40 a bottle. Not surprised by the gold medals. So much fun to sit in the beautiful, cozy tasting Room and on the patio and know I am drinking wine from the grapes I see in front of me. Reminds me of my years in Germany. Truly very few places like this in the world.
