Echelon Merlot 1999
The flavor profile is classical, with the Merlot giving the red berry freshness and a hint of herbs, while the Cabernet pulls it together with a darker plum-like fruit and the typical cedar. Like all the Echelon wines, the oak flavors are in the background, with the fruit flavors occupying the foreground. Merlot has the structure to stand up to almost any food. It has enough tannins to pair well with meats such as lamb or duck, and is delicate enough to serve with pasta dishes.
-Larry Brooks, Consulting Winemaker
Echelon’s superb grapes and gentle winemaking result in fresh, fruit-forward wines. Beautifully balanced and pleasingly complex, these impressive premium wines are easy on the palate and the budget.
