2009 Merlot

This medium-bodied Bordeaux is showing deep aromas of dark, jammy wild cherries, roasty oak, and a hint of earthiness. Aging in French oak and a touch of Petit Verdot integrate Old World structure and tannic strength into this soft, supple, easy going red. Try with grilled pork tenderloin with cranberries.
