Aromas of ripe raspberry and plum are layered with earthy spices of black pepper and tea leaves. Concentrated red fruit flavors are fresh and bright on the palate leading to expansive notes of spice and forest floor. The finish is well-rounded with balanced tannins and graceful acidity. Dishes with thyme or allspice enhance the beautifully fresh spice notes in this vibrant Merlot. Winery Chef Chris Kennedy suggests pairing it with savory dishes like Merlot-glazed barbecued chicken, pepper-crusted grilled Ahi tuna, or our Sautéed Chanterelle Mushrooms.

Herbaceous and tart in red currant, this is a graceful and balanced red wine that is soft and supple in tannin. Ready for the table, it delivers consistency and structure without fuss, delivering elegant cedar and clove tones as it finishes.

The 2018 Merlot Signature is similar, with a mid-weight, elegant, yet moderately concentrated style and firm tannins. There's better out there.
