2016 Merlot, Sonoma Valley
Our rich and velvety textured 2016 Merlot delivers strawberry, black tea and star anise aromas. A complex core of black cherry flavor melds wonderfully through the silky finish and rich tannin structure.
The rich volcanic soils of the Kunde Estate create a powerful Merlot. Perhaps it’s the iron content in the dirt that causes the wine to show just a bit more power than is common in the market, but we like a big Merlot! For your next red meat pairing, try substituting this Merlot with your Cabernet drinkers and watch them go back for seconds. It’s seductively rich and smooth and lingers deliciously on the palate.
