Wine Maker Notes
Our 2011 Merlot is rich and appealing with aromas of candied orange peel, molasses, cherry compote and smoky BBQ spice. This wine is powerfully lush andfruit-forward with flavors of blackberry, red currant and sweetened cranberry balanced out by roasted macadamia nut, herbal notes and tannins that coat theback palate. It’s a lovely food pairing wine!

This wine is ready to be paired with braised meats, an herb roast chicken with garlic mashed potatoes or something simple and hearty such as a coarsely ground beef burger with sharp white cheddar and arugula.
