Merlot

 

Tasting Notes

  • Aroma: A rich, complex aroma with notes of plums, blackberries, raspberries, chocolate, and tobacco. 
  • Flavor: Full-bodied and fruity, with a smooth, velvety texture. The fruit flavors are typically ripe and concentrated, with a hint of sweetness. The tannins are moderate, and the acidity is well-balanced.
  • Body: Full-bodied.
  • Acidity: Medium to high.
  • Tannins: Moderate.

Pairing Suggestions

  • Roasted meats: Pairs well with roasted meats, such as beef, lamb, and pork. The fruitiness of the wine can complement the richness of the meat, while the tannins help to balance the fat.
  • Game: Pairs with game, such as venison, duck, and pheasant. The fruitiness of the wine can complement the gamey flavors of the meat, while the tannins help to cut through the richness.
  • Spicy foods: Can also be paired with spicy foods, such as chili, curry, and sausage. The fruitiness of the wine can help to cut through the richness of the spices, while the tannins help to balance the heat.
  • Cheese: Pairs well with cheese, such as cheddar, gouda, or blue cheese. The fruitiness of the wine can complement the flavors of the cheese, while the tannins help to cleanse the palate.
