100% Merlot grown by Sam McCullough at his McCullough Vineyard.
Black in color with a dark red brick rim. Beautiful classic aromas of cassis, fine sandalwood, iodine, and leather fill the glass. The mouth-feel is rich and soft with amazing concentration and layers. Ripe fruit and dark chocolate are balanced with fine toasted oak notes, loads of velvet tannins and wonderful earthy and mushroom characters. The finish is big and has great minerality and warmth and goes on for a long time. There is an overall intensity and dynamic that makes this Merlot very special and food friendly.
Food Pairing Notes
Serve just above room temperature and pair this Merlot with dishes you might think of for big, bold wines: steak, cassoulet, and decadent dark chocolate desserts.
