2016 XXXI Merlot

Our old vines Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon hold a special place in my heart. For this vintage of our Merlot the spicy earthy Character that I love so much in Merlot are just beautiful.

Aroma:  Roasted chestnuts, sweet tobacco leaf, and a hint of pencil lead are the earth and spice. Macerated cherries, ripe blackberries, and a hint of vanilla barrel toast round out the aromatic bouquet.

Taste:  The palate is just gorgeous, full, rich, and textured without being too aggressive in any way. The fruit notes and earthy tones all seem to comingle so uniformly that I can’t distinguish any order of presence (which I really like!) the finish lingers with notes of cherry and tobacco. 

Food Pairing:  This wine is asking to be paired with a beautifully tender braised beef or lamb. The meat served over hearty smashed potatoes or cheesy polenta.
