Wine Review: This dark ruby colored Merlot from the Dry Creek was a consensus, everyday drinking Merlot to be mainly enjoyed with food. It opens with a black cherry and blueberry like bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced, and smooth. The flavor profile is a blueberry and cherry cola blend with a hint of cedar plank and plum. The finish is dry with a bit of edginess that lingers in the end. The panel recommended pairing this Merlot with a tangy pulled pork sandwich. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: Warm, lush flavors of cherry liqueur are punctuated with notes of bright red currant and rhubarb in our 2010 Home Ranch Merlot. The wine has a rich mouth-feel without being ponderous, with notes of dark chocolate, vanilla and cinnamon spice and an intriguing note of pink peppercorn. The tannins are soft and supple and the wine carries a long, smooth finish.
