The 2006 Mirassou California Merlot displays luscious fruit flavors of black cherry and blackberry. These primary flavors are augmented with secondary flavors of vanilla, toasty oak and brown spices. The addition of Zinfandel and Syrah varietals contribute to a full-bodied mouth feel and lingering, smooth finish. This wine is at its best if enjoyed within a year of release, but should be able to age in the bottle for up to three years if carefully cellared.
Offering fresh fruit flavors of black cherry and blackberry, balanced with elegant toasty aromas and hints of spice, Mirassou California Merlot is a bright expression of California's most celebrated growing regions.
