Single grape, single vineyard merlot. Nature gave us lower yields than previous vintages. With the perfect fall weather we had the luxury of picking when the grapes reached perfect maturity. Resulting wine is denser, and packed with more structure and weight than its previous predecessors.Textbook example of a great merlot from the Golden Mile.
Don’t be afraid of pairing this wine with the richest of the dishes.
Intensely flavored marinades with your choice of steak would be a great accompaniment. Rosemary and Garlic-Rubbed Rack of lamb is a favorite.
Marinated Tofu steak with vegan BBQ Sauce or Vegetable Meatballs with Roasted Red Pepper Sauce are delicious with this wine.
