The 2012 Merlot opens with lovely flavors of black cherry, plum and a spice scented nose. The sweet fruit on the palate is complemented by the medium-bodied tannins and toasty oak with a nice smooth finish.
This is a soft and versatile style of Merlot that would pair well with foods like pork tacos or grilled tuna steaks. It will also make a great pairing for vegetarian dishes like grilled Portobello mushrooms or pasta with tomato sauce.
Blend: 90% Merlot, 10% Syrah
