This lush and inviting Merlot displays layers of black cherry, blueberry, and cassis, underscored by vanilla and cocoa. On the palate, balanced acidity adds poise and elegance, while silky tannins carry the wine to a fruitful and concentrated finish.
Blend: 96% Merlot and 4% Cabernet Sauvignon.

COMMENTARY: Merlot is one of the wine world's most important categories. While it doesn't always inspire the cognoscenti or the geeks, the general public enjoys the grape variety's softness and pleasing characteristics. TASTING NOTES: This wine exhibits fresh fruit, brightness, and excellent palate presence. Its aromas and flavors of bright red fruits and its frisky finish should pair it well with grilled pork ribs with a mild BBQ sauce. (Tasted: April 11, 2019, San Francisco, CA)
