It’s been 4 years since we had a growing season worthy of a good medium to full-bodied Merlot. Deep blackberry aroma with blackberry flavor nicely balanced with 18 months aging in French Oak Barrels. Very nice soft lingering dry finish.

A fabulous wine for pairing with a variety of foods including grilled meats (less- fatty steaks similar to a New York Strip Steak), roast chicken, duck, most pork dishes and spaghetti and meatballs. Merlot goes great with vegetables including tomatoes (Caprese salad) and
mushrooms (in a sauce or salad or alongside meat and potatoes) and try it with salads such as Caesar or antipasto salads.
If you're unsure of a red wine for a meal, Merlot is a safe choice.
