“I'll be the first to admit, Merlot is not one of my personal favorite varietals; no hard feels, Merlot! But with that said, this wine speaks for itself and has me eating (or sipping) my words. Just as deep in hue as it is in flavor, this drop sings of ripened plum, sultry tannins on the back end and a pleasurable finish. My, my it's just delicious.” —Sam
From Where? Central Coast, California
Pairing Suggestion: I love a good compound butter (A specialized spread composed of softened butter and other ingredients; one of the Barefoot Contessa’s specialties), and a fabulous pairing for this wine is a simple Grilled Steak served with Sautéed Green Beans and Bleu Cheese Butter. YUM.
