Our 2014 Merlot is a full-bodied dry red wine. Aromatics of cherry, plum and boysenberry are delicately framed by vanilla and baking spices. This fruity Merlot has a big mouth feel with finesse and velvety tannins.

 

Food pairing suggestions:

Italian-style sausages with fennel, spaghetti and meatballs, basked pasta dishes such as lasagne and similar veggie bakes, burgers-especially cheeseburgers!! Braised short ribs, spicy rice dishes such as jambalaya; mild to medium hard cheeses-but not very strongly flavored.
