A wine of complexity and understated elegance. Though subtle and silky around the edges, this wine has a body of concentration and substance. Bright summer cherries greet the nose and palate, while touches of tea and rich red fruit are mouth-filling and lingering. The finish, reinforced by smooth, assertive tannins, hints of toasty oak and spice.
Merlot is a perfect match for beef and other medium-heavy dishes. It pairs wonderfully with rich, red pasta sauces, pork, turkey, beef, veal, pheasant, and garden salads. Merlot is also an excellent compliment to chocolate.
