Wine Review: This medium purple colored Merlot opens with a red plum and mint leaf bouquet with earthy notes and a hint of blackberry. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied with medium acidity. It also has rounded edges and is a bit rustic. The flavor profile is a spiced plum, black raspberry and earthy loam blend. We also detected hints of black pepper and black tea. The finish is dry and its acidity, flavors and light tannins are nicely prolonged. This savory Merlot would pair well with meals like beef stew or a beef and broccoli stir fry. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: The 2017 Russian River Valley Windacre Merlot has deep, dark fruit on the nose with flavors of blackberry, fig, Bing Cherry and hints of earthy spice. Structured tannins add depth and a balanced finish.
