Food Pairings for Ahnfeldt Merlot Napa Valley
Very fruity on the nose. Beautiful dark fruit and smooth in the mouth. Tannins and acid medium plus. Delicious.
This is a Gold Medal Wine Club Platinum Series selection. The 2004 Ahnfeldt Napa Valley Merlot is a flavor-bursting food wine that upholds the winery’s award-winning reputation of smooth, fruit-concentrated Merlots. Blended exclusively from three of Ahnfeldt’s best small vineyards, the 2004 Merlot has a touch of Cabernet Sauvignon to add complexity and structure. This remarkably textured and balanced Merlot was honored with 91 Points from Wine Spectator, and praised by judges as “dark and powerful.” The 2004 Merlot is also a winning vintage with Wine Enthusiast magazine, garnering a score of 90 Points. Ahnfeldt’s Merlot expresses blackberry, licorice and espresso aromas with a seamless flavor entry of rich wild berries, sweet vanilla, mocha, and cedar spice that balances plenty of ripe, smooth tannins on the long finish. This is an elegant table wine that effortlessly pairs with many favorite meals. Try beef tenderloin, pot roasts, and grilled salmon to accompany this velvety Merlot. Aged 22 months in oak. 86% Merlot, 14% Cabernet Sauvignon. Enjoy now until 2014.
