Pepperwood Grove Merlot California 2008
Dark ruby in color with aromas of raspberries, crème brulee, and a hint of chocolate and oregano. This Merlot has flavors of strawberry rhubarb pie, plums, green olives with pimentos, and cinnamon finishing with dried apricots, mild green tea, and toasty American oak. Once again, we like this wine to be a great party wine. It tastes good with or without food. Enjoy at the park with some jack cheese, sliced apples, and a baguette. Have this with your favorite pizza after a long day at the office. I would serve this with a ratatouille of eggplant, zucchini, and peppers with grilled chicken over creamy polenta for a festive and satisfying dinner.
External Reviews for Pepperwood Grove Merlot California
A careful selection of the wine lots that went into the final blend enabled the winemaker to emphasize the soft berry fruit and round tannins that have made this their most popular wine.
Currant, raisin, violet and blackberry flavors are intense in the good-value Merlot, which finishes with solid tannins and nicely integrated tones of mocha and coffee that linger. Drink now through 2005.
Ripe, with concentrated black cherry, chocolate and pomegranate tones. Impressive fruit intensity folds into toasty oak and supple structure on the fine finish. Drink now through 2007.
Dark ruby in color with aromas of raspberries, creme brulee, and a hint of chocolate and oregano. This Merlot has flavors of strawberry rhubarb pie, plums, green olives with pimentos, and cinnamon finishing with dried apricots, mild green tea, and toasty American oak.
Jammy and round, with black cherry, chocolate, spice and subtle black licorice flavors, underscored by modest tannins. An excellent value. Drink now through 2006.
Well made in a light style, this wine's simple red fruit makes a gentle companion for roast beef.
