Wine Maker Notes
You can think of Merlot as a softer, even friendlier, version of a Cabernet Sauvignon. Peter Vella® Merlot, in particular, has a lighter mouthfeel and a fresher taste that people really seem to appreciate. Its easy-to-enjoy style marries well with the prominent but delicate flavors of ripe raspberry and cherry.

Our Merlot is lighter-bodied wine, which means it pairs extremely well with heavier dishes like pasta. I like to highlight the raspberry fruit of this wine with the foods I prepare, so I`ll usually pair it with a rich homemade tomato sauce with Italian sausage over spaghetti. All I need then is a little salad and some fresh-baked garlic bread and I`m all set!
