This wine has an intense, ripe flavors and bright acidity that pairs well with a variety of dishes. Distinctive aromas of ripe red cherry, Asian plum and cranberry, along with hints of black olive, tea leaf, baking spice and sweet oak, make this red merlot a unique dark red wine. Mocha, brown sugar and sweet oak round out the nose, while the palate brims with dark ripe cherry, Marion berry and plum flavors. Oak aging lends sweet toast and brown sugar notes to the lingering finish. Pair this merlot wine with rotisserie chicken, meat ravioli, wild salmon and herbed cheese.
