PAIR: Roasted chicken, pastaMonterey County is the kind of place Merlot grapes love to grow. Not too warm, not too cold, a little bit of rainfall. Makes our coastal Merlot just right.
Medium ruby colour; dry, full-bodied with layers of berry and spice and light oak nuances; soft tannins lead to supple finish.
