Wine Review: This dark ruby colored Merlot from J. Lohr opens with a mulberry bouquet with a hint of black cherry. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied with medium plus acidity. The mouthfeel is balanced and round. The flavor profile is mild black berry and oak blend with notes of black plum. I also detected hints Chai tea and toasted coconut. The finish is dry, and its moderate tannins and tingly acidity linger nicely. This easy to drink Merlot is a nice and affordable mid-week option to pair with your favorite burger or burrito recipe. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: The 2020 J. Lohr Estates “Los Osos” Merlot displays varietal aromas of black plum, black currant, and violet along with a light barrel signature of baking spices and toasted pastry. Malbec in the blend contributes notes of pomegranate and hibiscus flower and brings juiciness to the palate, while Cabernet Franc adds layers of cocoa and peppery spice. The mouth-watering palate transitions to a lingering black cherry finish. This versatile wine pairs well with grilled sausage or a vegetable shish kebob.
