Food Pairings for Lolonis Merlot
This Merlot has generous amounts of berry fruit, cherries, rose petals, and subtle notes of toasty oak, spice and caramel to round it out. A rather generously sized Merlot, it is still showing a bit young and tight, but opens up quite nicely with a little decanting. Cellaring will improve its balance, with it showing at its best in another four to six years and is easily age-worthy for those who like to collect wines. Aged in French and American oak barrels for 14-18 months. Grapes are organically grown on 40-year-old vines on 8x14 spacing with bi-lateral cordons. Cover crops and leaf pulling are practiced to promote optimal vineyard conditions. Ladybugs, not chemicals, are used to combat pests.
