Looking for a medium-body merlot that pairs perfectly with grass-fed beef dishes and game? Look no further than this organically crafted wine.
Raised on vines in a valley that absorbs the full brilliance of a Mendocino County day, this nuanced wine blends a focused Merlot character with an evident heritage of Bordeaux. Aromas of cranberry, chocolate and cola spice add to the old-world style. Our Merlot is wonderfully dry, with compelling fruit and touches of herbs and light oak.
91 Points / Exceptional
“Deep garnet color. Vibrant chocolate coconut macaroon and berry crust pie aromas follow through on a soft, supple entry to a dry-yet-fruity medium-to-full body with tangy sour cherry, apple and tomato skin accents. Finishes in a long, dark berry and cocoa fade with a dash of minerals. A delicious, balanced and engaging red to sip or pair with almost anything.”
