Winemaker's Notes

The Danzante 2002 Merlot unfolds in velvety layers of plum and blueberry, with nuances of spicy cinnamon and fresh pepper. This intense ruby red and purple-hued wine has a soft, smooth mouthfeel with balanced tannins. The flavors carry through the sweet, persistent finish.

Or try it with chicken stew or baked rabbit.
