The dark red brick hue of Fetzer Eagle Peak Merlot hints at the depth and complexity of this wine. Layered aromas of fresh plum and red fruits are framed by hints of cocoa, vanilla and mocha. The palate is juicy and succulent, with firm yet velvety tannins. Notes of sassafras and black pepper linger on the finish. This Merlot was harvested in the heat of September and October and was fermented in stainless steel tanks.
