Palisade is the first Merlot from Soos Creek in several years, a fruity, juicy, forward and appealing wine whose cranberry-flavored fruit suggests a turkey-based dinner accompaniment. It rounds out nicely in the midpalate, and continues cleanly into a rather crisp finish, with a suggestion of rye or caraway as a final note.
