Dark Horse Merlot is a medium-bodied Merlot with notes of dark berry and a layered finish. It complements both modest meals and gourmet dishes. As well as sitting nicely next to a plate of a slow roasted beef brisket or saucy vegetable lasagne, the Dark Horse Merlot is also a great fit when paired with mouthfuls of spicy jambalaya.
The unexpected winner. For us, winning means bringing you exceptionally crafted and well-balanced wine that overdelivers on your expectations. We do this by working side-by-side with 400 of California's finest grape growers to earn the first pick of their harvest. And, we taste our wine over 100 times before you pour your first glass.

|Tasting Notes||Dark Horse Merlot has robust flavours with smooth tannins. Rich aromas of dark, jammy blackberries are complemented by toasted oak with a long, plush finish|
|Storage Instructions||This wine is ideal for drinking now but can be kept for up to 2 years|
|Country of Origin||United States|
|Vinification||The grapes for our Dark Horse Merlot were harvested at optimum ripeness to ensure extraction of rich colours and velvety tannings. Warmer temperatures around 85°-88°F were used during fermentation in order to achieve more intense flavours and aromatics. After the fermentation was complete, the wine was aged on oak to add complexity and balance.|
|History||At Dark Horse Wine, we wholeheartedly believe that fortune favours the bold. Winemaker Beth Liston marshals the best agricultural and winemaking resources from around the globe to deliver the unexpected: a bold wine that outperforms its price.|
|Regional Information||The grapes for our Merlot were selected from premier California vineyards by our Winemaker Beth Liston. The warm and dry weather combined with minimal heat spikes make the ideal growing season. Canopy management played a key role in allowing just the right amount of sunlight on the berries, resulting in a perfect balance of vibrant flavours and aromas.|
