Five Rivers Merlot 2010 750ml

Five Rivers Merlot

Deep garnet in color with a rich and aromatic bouquet of cherry, cassis and plum, mingling with hints of cocoa, clove and cracked pepper. Balanced and supple on the palate with plum, blackberry and creamy oak flavors, a full mouth feel, medium tannins and a long, sweet vanilla finish.

Deep garnet in color, the Five Rivers Merlot leads with aromas of plum, blueberry and tea, accented by touches of cinnamon and vanilla. In the glass, you will find pleasantly smooth tannins with bright pomegranate and red fruit flavors.

Fermented on the skins until it reached zero brix, then gravity drained to press. Fairly intense extraction was accomplished by short pump-overs four times per day. Individual lots were vinified and aged separately in French and American oak for approx. 9 months (18% new), with small amounts of Petite Verdot and Malbec added to enhance the structure and color of the final wine.

Enjoy Five Rivers Merlot with a wide range of meats, cheeses and hearty dishes.
