A full-bodied, supple and flavorful Merlot featuring plum, berry, vanilla and chocolate notes, a good balance and soft tannins.
Kenwood Vineyards creates its award-winning Sonoma County Merlot from vineyards located in the Sonoma, Dry Creek and Alexander Valleys. Grapes harvested in the cooler Sonoma Valley region are deep in color with intense berry flavors. Winemaker Mike Lee balances the blend with produce from the warmer Dry Creek and Alexander Valley regions, that grow fruitier grapes. The resulting wine is ripe, supple and well-proportioned.
FOOD RECOMMENDATIONS: This wonderfully approachable Merlot is an ideal complement to grilled salmon, swordfish, red meat and rich tomato sauce dishes.
