Our Merlot fruit comes from immediately across Dry Creek Road from the winery. Our 2013 Merlot leans toward a tart raspberry and red cherry character. Its aromas are very pretty, with framboise a a suggestion of cigar box. Moderate, supple tannins provide a solid frame for the raspberry and cherry flavors, and the finish lingers with a touch of vanilla and cinnamon. Try this one with a roast pork tenderloin with a cherry glaze, or a chickpea and cauliflower tagine.
