Wine Review: This dark red colored Merlot from Merriam opens with a ripe black plum bouquet with hints of oak and black licorice. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied and round with bright acidity. The flavor profile is plum with notes chalky minerality. We also detected hints of black cherry, faint oak, and a touch of vanilla. The finish is dry and its soft tannins drift away nicely. This Merlot would pair nicely with beef Bolognese. Enjoy – Ken & Joe

Winemaker Notes: A light ruby red wine that opens with a beautiful fruit-forward bouquet on the nose by way of raspberries and cranberries with a swirl of vanilla on the nose. On the palate, a sense of vineyard terroir shines through with slight herbaceous qualities and hints of cranberry and dark chocolate on the finish.
