Merlot, Pinot Noir , Sangiovese
The Full Review
It’s a straight up dream to see a Merlot from California at 13.5% alcohol. This wine is pricey, and a true expression of the grape, so if you like big wines from Cali this may not be for you. What you get is a soft, vibrant, soulful red wine. The acidity is so bright that it floats on the palate, and with such balanced alcohol you get the full merlot experience without burning your nose hairs. It is a wonderful pairing for lean meats like grilled chicken or filet mignon - even a skirt steak. This is the way wine once was from here and should be again.
