This wine is smooth, approachable, and only slightly oaked. Pours a deep-ruby with aromas of red fruits, herbal notes, and a touch of oak. Hints of vanilla and spice on the pallet mingle with raspberry, cherry, and ripe plum. Due to its versatility, Merlot pairs well with a wide range of foods. It goes nicely with dishes like roasted poultry, grilled pork, lamb, and mushroom-based dishes. Its soft tannins and fruity flavors can also complement cheeses like Brie and Camembert.
