The producer of this American Merlot uses Noble vines 181. This is the most coveted Merlot vine stock in Bordeaux, France. These rare vines are prized for their concentrated flavour and thrive in the red soils and cobblestones of our lodi vineyard based in California, USA. This wine is a lavish expression of classic Bordeaux style with rich round mouthfeel, plush tannins and sumptuous notes of black cherry and spice.
This fine Californian Merlot elegantly opens with aromas of cherry, blackberry and sweet herbs. Fresh fruit flavors of black cherry and ripe plum fuse seamlessly with hints of spice leading to a lingering and luxurious finish
Ideal with Chuleta, Solomio, Albondigas or even our chocolate mousse dessert as the pudding will pick up the cherry flavour very well.
