Our wine tonight is the Reserve Merlot from Red Rock Winery.
Vinted by Red Rock Winery in Modesto, California.
We’ve found notes though without confirmation of less than five percent Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Sirah blended in.
Inky purple in color with a soft purple rim.
Nose of red plum, strawberry, raspberry, cherry, and soft vanilla and herbal tones.
Medium bodied, medium acidity, medium-high alcohol drinking smooth with soft tannins.
Medium pronounced flavor notes of black plum, blackberry, raspberry, and hints of cherry with a delicate oak and vanilla finish.
This is a very approachable Merlot of California.
We paired with Italian at favorite local Italian restaurant.
