Merlot 


At Moon Mountain Vineyard, Merlot has been boldly reimagined. Our aptly named Dynamite Block produces a bottling with the weight and dimension to rival the robust Cabernet Sauvignon planted nearby. Though this selection offers the brightness and charm characterized by Merlot, Moon Mountain Vineyard also demonstrates a penchant for producing wines of impressive size. This mouthfilling example is no exception – its remarkable power and purity of fruit illustrates our Merlot’s rugged hillside origins.
