Wine Review: This dark ruby colored Merlot from the Finger Lakes got the nod from the tasting panel. It opens with a black cherry bouquet with hints of red currant, oak and earth. On the palate, it is medium bodied, balanced and easy going. The flavor profile is a mild tart red plum with hints of spice and mild oak. The finish is dry and its moderate tannins are sticky. The panel thought this Merlot would be a good match for a juicy Angus burger or sausage and peppers. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: The afternoon sun warms this west-facing vineyard site, producing grapes that showcase generous fruit flavors of plum and cherry. Opening with cinnamon and smoke on the nose, this approachable wine offers supple tannins and great freshness on the palate. Serve with rosemary roasted chicken, or creamy sun-dried tomato risotto. A treat with dark chocolate.
