Ferrari-Carano Merlot gives you the rich, deep flavors of fine red Bordeaux grapes without the heavy tannins of young Cabernets. Our vineyards produce superior Merlot grapes for a soft, velvety wine with rich concentrated fruit and supple tannins. An outstanding red dinner wine.
Wine Maker Notes
The Merlot is a velvety wine with a complex nose of blueberry pie, raspberry jam, cedar, vanilla and spice. A fleshy and generous mouthfeel is followed by notes of bittersweet chocolate, clove and toffee. This wine has full, generous tannins that coat the palate, impressive length and lasting acidity.
Blend: Merlot with a touch of Malbec and Petit Verdot Alcohol: 13.9% Barrel Aging: 17 months Bottle Aging: 12 months
The fruit forward, easy drinking qualities of our Merlot make it the perfect wine to pair with any red meat course, Italian entree, and roasted or grilled fragrantly-spiced poultry dishes.
