The 2014 Liberty School Merlot has a deep opaque ruby-black color. Bright blackberry and blueberry aromas fill the glass with an intriguing note of Rainier cherry alongside lavender, clove and a kiss of vanilla. On the palate, the dark fruit play out in concert with the cherry flavor, while accentuated by sweet vanilla and toasted oak. It’s firm yet velvety tannins are balanced by mouthwatering acidity and a long, silky finish.

The Hope family has been farming in Paso Robles for more than 30 years. When they arrived in this barely-discovered region, they planted apples and grapes. Little did they know that the rolling, oak-studded terrain of Paso Robles would one day become a viticultural terroir of significance and one of the top winegrowing regions for quality red wine within the Central Coast.
