2018 Estate Merlot
Strawberry rhubarb pie and hot caramel are accented by spicy cracked black pepper.
Raw spice of the white pepper darkens the radiant tang of cranberries, and underlying oak raises the spirit.
Merlot is one of the world’s most popular red wines, and America’s second favorite after Cabernet Sauvignon. Known for its soft, sensual texture and approachable style, it’s made from red-skinned grapes that can adapt to a variety of climates to produce food-friendly wines in many price points. Merlot can be velvety and plummy, or rich and oaky. There’s something for everyone, which is why Merlot is adored.
