Gundlach-Bundschu Estate Vineyard Merlot 2016 Review

This is such a classic and beautiful full-bodied American Merlot. The nose will remind you of walking by a coffee shop while eating blueberry gelato. The palate has some heft, while still having a silky and easy mouthfeel. I am sure this bottle will go very well with light meats like roasted chicken but damn, I would just invite some good friends over and throwdown on some local cheese and meats and watch the sunset.
