Winemaker's Notes

A blend of 79% Merlot, 10% Petite Sirah, 6% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Cabernet Franc.

The Ironstone Merlot boasts a complex and heady bouquet of ripe plums, black cherries, and violets with an undertone of sweet wood and green peppercorn. On the palate, this vintage exudes rich fruit flavors of juicy cherries and currants with soft caramel highlights. This luscious, medium-bodied red has soft tannins with a rounded well-balanced finish.

Our Merlot's softer, fruit-forward style has a broad appeal and goes well with a variety of dishes. Because of its softness, it is a perfect crossover wine that will pair great with red meats as well as pork and chicken dishes. Try a roasted pork loin with fennel tomato sauce.
