The rich fruit flavors in Stone Cellars Merlot are concentrated but wonderfully balanced. It is full of ripe cherry and black stone fruit on the nose, along with a hint of mint. The intense flavors of plum, blueberry and blackberry are all enhanced by warm, brown spices that linger on the finish. The Stone Cellars Merlot is perfect as a pre-dinner aperitif, as well as an ideal match for a variety of rich dishes such as chili con carne or pasta puttanesca.
