Food Pairings for Jeff Gordon Cellars Merlot San Luis Obispo County
Deep scarlet in color, the 2005 Merlot is luscious and velvety exhibiting black cherries and red licorice on the nose. Dried cranberry, earth, and cedar tones intertwine on the palate, the wine is rounded off with hints of dark chocolate and finishes with a strong backbone of acidity. The wine shows well after some decanting and will just get better over the next several years.
