Wine Maker Notes
For our Red Rock Winery Reserve Merlot, we select grapes that offer red and black jammy flavors, while providing balance and finesse to the wine. This Merlot opens with aromas of caramelized sugar and vanilla, which is balanced with jammy berry flavors. Dark fruit flavors of blackberry, dark cherry and black currant overwhelm the palate, creating a well-rounded structure. In the winery, we take great care to achieve a delicate harmony between fruit and hints of oak, balancing body with flavor.
This Merlot is an excellent match for a wide range of foods, offering a delicious complement to herb-based dishes with rosemary, thyme, tarragon or mint. It also pairs beautifully with pastas in red sauce, grilled meats and a variety of cheeses, ranging from tangy goat cheese to smoked Gouda.
