2017 Merlot

Brawny mountain-like tannins with aromas of black stone fruits meld with subtle flavors of vanilla bean and mocha.

 

Food pairing suggestions:

Italian-style sausages with fennel, spaghetti and meatballs, baked 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.
