You probably hate Merlot because of Paul Giamatti's character in "Sideways" always proclaiming his disdain for this very misunderstood grape. However, the truth is that Merlot is a wonderful and very approachable wine that is exceptional with all types of cuisines. This California Merlot is a juicier expression of this grape compared to its French brother in Bordeaux. Here you will encounter scents of black currant, rosemary and blueberry awash in flavors of cedar, plum and cherry cola. Drink your new favorite wine with barbecue chicken, Sicilian pizza or mushroom Alfredo.
