It's easy to forget how gorgeous Long Haul can be -- Merlot-dominant blends simply don't get the love the way Cab-blends do. I'm here to remind you! Bright and aromatic, silky and deep, a beautiful marriage of red and black fruits mingling with violet and sweet incense notes. Already shining due to its freshness but as the name implies, plan to stash a few of these for the L__g H__l. 80% Merlot, 9% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8%Cabernet franc, 3% Petit Verdot. - Marcus

2014 vintage notes

With 2014, Mark Ryan shifted Long Haul to a heftier backbone of Merlot (78%) blended with 14% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Cabernet Franc, and 2% Petit Verdot.

2013 vintage notes

93-95 points Wine Advocate: "Seeing 62% new French oak, it exhibits perfumed and complex notes of violets, cassis, black plums, licorice and wet rock-like minerality on the nose. Medium to full-bodied, incredibly polished and refined, with, again, sensational purity of fruit, it builds nicely in the glass, has good tannic grip, and should age gracefully. I think it's the finest vintage of this cuvee to date." 51% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Franc, 8% Cabernet Sauvignon, 1% Petit Verdot.

We concur the stunning nature of 2013 Long Haul. - M&A

2012 vintage notes

Long Haul 2012 is more open and expressive than Dead Horse at this point, with opulent black cherry and currant initially, delving darker, sharing the stage with cigar box, crushed minerals, and chocolate. This awesome vintage of Long Haul is 49% Merlot, 44% Cabernet Franc, 6% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 1% Petit Verdot. - Marcus
