This Merlot expresses aroma of deep dark cherry, blueberry, and spice. This gorgeous montage of aroma is supported by densely textured, silky body that is soft and pleasing on the palate. The quality of this wine is further demonstrated by the harmonious balance of finely polished tannin and ripe and supple fruit. All of this is beautifully held together by a pleasant acidity that makes it a favored match for well-prepared food. This merlot is a natural for grilled meats, sausages, pasta with tomato sauce, and medium to bold cheese. Try this wine with, grilled pork tenderloin rubbed with Napa Valley whole-grain mustard and rosemary.
California produces the majority of wine made in the United States. Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Sauvignon Blanc, Zinfandel and Pinot Noir dominate the wine production in California, but many other varietials thrive in the California climate. Many fine wines are produced in California using Mediterranean grapes.
