2015 Reserve Merlot

Our "Reserve" line of wines are crafted by selecting and blending our favorite three barrels that show complexity and depth.

 

Black cherry fruit, oak and density come together in this exclusive Merlot Reserve wine.

 

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.
