Vinification Details

  • The grapes for Dark Horse Merlot were harvested at optimum ripeness, which allowed for easy extraction of rich colour and velvety tannins. The winemaker selected aromatic yeast strains and employed a warm fermentation process, which has resulted in a wine with more flavour and fruitier aromatics. Proper storage after fermentation has helped to build complexity on the palate and bring a nice balance to the wine


  • At Dark Horse Wine, we 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

  • In 2017, California had record rainfall of more than 35 inches in the N. Valley and more than 16 inches in the S. Valley. The rainfall filled lakes & reservoirs, recharged ground water, and flushed salts through saturated soils. Early growth was strong, and the vines were happy & healthy. Early spring was fairly mild, but then record heat was experienced in N. Valley, recording the hottest summer in nearly 40 years.
