Merlot

2017 Merlot

Intense aromas of fig and coffee lead to flavors of strawberry jam, plum and clove. Deep purple in color, this Merlot is full-bodied and will coat your palate with sweet cedar, toasted oak, hazelnut and cherry on the finish. This versatile Merlot will pair well with anything but will really shine with braised lamb shanks, marbled red meats or lamb stew.
