A fruit forward wine that opens with aromas of red cherry, red plum, cassis, raspberry, anise, chocolate
and spice. This rich Merlot fills the mouth with Bing cherry, plum, raspberry and boysenberry with notes
of clove and peppery spice before the smooth vanilla finish. Full-bodied, yet approachable, this wine is
well structured with a good balance of fruit, acid and tannins.
A perfect companion for food, this Merlot's fruit and balance lends itself to a wide range of cuisines. Pair
with grilled salmon, pork tenderloin, barbequed chicken and ribs, burgers, pulled pork sandwiches, your
favorite pizza, spicy sausages or kebabs. Try with steak and shrimp fajitas, Thai red curry, Moroccan
tagine, baked rigatoni or hearty winter soups and stews.
