Tasting Notes
85% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Cabernet Franc
Vineyard Notes
Merlot grapes, for this vintage, were grown in several of Lodi’s sub-appellations. These different locations provide diverse soils and climate that, when combined, create a more complex wine than one vineyard alone.
Winemaker Notes
The Ironstone 2014 Merlot is bursting with luscious fruit and soft tannins with excellent drinkability. Rich, ripe black cherry and black plums leads to a hint of vanilla and toast. Flavors of currants with juicy dark fruit and spicy cedar end with a rounded, well-balanced and complex finish.
Food Pairing Notes
Our Merlot has a softer, fleshier, fruit-forward style that complements many dishes. Try it with baked pasta dishes such as lasagna, spicy rice dishes such as jambalaya, hearty bean dishes with bacon or smoked ham, roast turkey and even blackened salmon or other dense fish in a tomato-based sauce.

I adore this wine. It's my absolute favorite merlot! To me the taste is what I'd call meaty, in that the flavor was so full and complete that it was almost as though I was eating a meal instead of just sipping some wine. I love this wine with red meat, but it holds up on it's own or is wonderful with some bread and cheese.
