Hawk Crest Merlot California 2005
Vibrant red fruit aromas of cranberry, raspberry, and strawberry rise from the glass and mingle with spicy notes of cardamom, anise, and vanilla. Similar flavors weave across the palate along with bright red plum and nutmeg. Soft, subtle tannins create a silky entry and medium weight to this well balanced wine. Enjoy the 2005 Merlot with a pork tenderloin in pomegranate sauce or, for more casual fare, try it with a prosciutto and brie panini.
External Reviews for Hawk Crest Merlot California
Plum, black currant and herbal notes are nicely underscored by firm tannins and toasty oak. A great accompaniment to roast pork and holiday turkey.
