Wine Review: This midnight purple colored Merlot from La Jota in very very good. It opens with a fragrant boysenberry and dark chocolate bouquet with hints of pomegranate. On the palate, this wine is full bodied and balanced. The flavor profile is a rich and extracted ripe blackberry and stewed plum blend with nicely integrated oak and minerality. I also detected a hint of blueberry in the background. The finish is dry and its solid and well-managed tannins linger and last nicely. This went perfect with my braised beef and rigatoni with sauteed wild mushrooms with a red wine reduced sauce. Enjoy - Ken
