Winemaker's Notes:

Our Sonoma Reserve Merlot is an elegant, well-balanced wine with attractive aromas of cocoa, black currant, clove and toasted oak. The wine is full-bodied with layers of juicy black cherries, coffee, and clove, finishing with a velvety mouthfeel and a well-integrated structure. After pairing with beef or pork tenderloin, cassoulet, sausage, or beef ravioli, don't try to subdue the subtle "Bravo" that might cross your lips.

About Blackstone Winery:

Sonoma County has always been Blackstone's home and inspiration. Since our beginning we’ve established a reputation for consistently delivering balanced, reliable wines of uncompromising quality

From the start, our goal has been to produce smooth, flavorful, harmonious wines with rich fruit, supple texture, and balanced oak. Early on, this approach found its ideal expression in our Merlot, which soon became — and still remains — America's favorite Merlot.
