2011 Merlot

2011 Merlot

The 2011 vintage year produced medium bodied reds with plenty of bright fruit character. This Merlot is showing aromas of dark cherries, sweet vanilla, a touch of tobacco and pleasing oak tannins on the finish. There’s more fruit on the palate in this soft, supple, easy going red. Try with grilled pork tenderloin with cranberries, or smoked gouda.
