Winemaker's Notes:

The 2009 Irony Merlot is a classically styled Merlot with medium body and firm tannins. Rich aromatics of black cherry, currant and plum intermingle with hints of vanilla and cedar. Well-balanced with a lingering finish, flavors of blackberry, licorice and sweet oak compliment the wine's bright acidity and structure.

Pairing suggestions are roasted beef, hearty pasta dishes or grilled pork chops.

About Irony:

Most of us didn't imagine where we would be right now. Sure, we dreamed of being firemen, astronauts, rock stars and superheroes, but life often takes you where you didn't expect it to.

My brother and I worked every harvest from the time we could ride our bikes. After college, our careers took us beyond the land our grandfather planted in 1924.

Ironically, today we are more fulfilled, working side-by-side at the family vineyard & winery. We didn't plan it or expect it, but we are enjoying this strange twist in our lives.

That's Irony - a bottle full of life's strange twists and a celebration of our family's life-long commitment to producing the finest quality wines.
