This Merlot offers surprising depth and intensity of colour, a deep ruby-red. Silky and rich, it is wonderfully mellow on the palate, boasting notes of red fruit, cherry, raspberry and spices. Serving suggestions: at 59 – 61 °F enjoy with poultry, lamb of soft cheeses.

Sometimes Bordeaux is the only choice for your dinner, but at other times you want something more accessible, like this plush red wine from the south of France. It's full of classic Merlot characteristics: dark plums, refreshing acidity, and velvety texture.
