Winemaker's Notes

Climate Notes: The warm climate of California's premier growing regions tempered by cool afternoon breezes and seasonal fogs is ideal for the cultivation of high-quality grapes full of bright fruit character.

Winemaker Notes: Displaying fresh fruit flavors of dark plum, cherry, and blackberry balanced with elegant toasty aromas and hints of spice, Mirassou Merlot is a bright expression of California's most celebrated growing regions.

Pairing Suggestions: We suggest enjoying this flavorful Merlot with preparations of beef, lamb, and game.
