Our Merlot delights from the start with a lovely nose of dark cherry and plum. The aroma gives way to savory notes of black pepper, mushrooms and chocolate. The wine is lush and silky tannins back up a full, strong palate with great structure through the end. Food Affinities A few twists of a black pepper grinder over a dish or in a marinade creates a lovely combination with Merlot. This is a great choice for spaghetti with meatballs and any dish featuring milder meats.

Wine AdvocateThe 2014 Merlot shows good fruit, but like so many Merlots, it lacks that extra spark of interest. It is clearly a good wine--and it is round and juicy, with cherry fruit and a bit of spice. It finishes with medium-bodied softness, but just lacks extra intensity and complexity. The color certainly is healthy, dark ruby/purple to the rim. Drink it over the next 5-7 years.
