This areas unique soil of decomposed granite mixed with volcanic sediment and red clay produce a wonderful mineral component. Grapes have been grown in the Sierra Foothills for 150 years.

Food Pairing Notes
Merlot wine matches with a wide variety of foods because of its position in the middle of the red wine spectrum. Some of the best proteins to match with Merlot are in the middle-weight category. Think roast duck, turkey, and lean cuts of beef. You might also consider baked pasta dishes like lasagna, as well as spicy rice dishes such as jambalaya.

It’s everything you said it was! Full of flavor and smooooth. It’s good for sipping but even better with food. We enjoyed it solo and then with a steak dinner. Looking forward to the next bottle.
