Food Pairings for Frei Brothers Reserve Merlot Dry Creek Valley
Our winemakers crafted this Merlot to reflect the pure, expressive flavors found in the Dry Creek Valley, where warm days, cool nights and well-draining soils that characterize this appellation make this region renowned for its terroir. The grapes were destemmed, but not crushed, to retain a significant portion of whole berries for fermentation. This technique enhanced the intensity of the dark fruit flavors in this Merlot. After fermentation, 100% of the wine completed malolactic fermentation to soften the acids and add layers of complexity.
Our 2007 Dry Creek Merlot captures the rich, ripe flavors of the Dry Creek Valley. It is a medium-bodied wine with intense flavors of blackberry and cherry, underscored by hints of spice from barrel aging.
