Region: California (Monterey & other regions)
Grapes: 100% Merlot
Tasting notes: Deep red colour, that entices with aromas of black cherry, tobacco and sweet anise. The palate is full of cherries, plums and a touch of cola, and has a silky smooth mouthfeel. An unexpected pop of acidity surprises the palate just before notes of baking spices and mocha lead to a soft and lingering finish.
Food match: A seriously diverse foodie wine! Pizza, Cheddar, pate and red meats.
