Food Pairings for Monticello Vineyards Merlot Estate
although Merlot gets a bad rap, still don't understand that, it is better than a lot of expensive cabs Ive had. You get your moneys worth and a wine to really talk about. nice nose, very smooth and low acidic which is great for me since over time that has been a health concern for me. very nice.
Vineyard Notes: The Oak Knoll District of Napa Valley of Napa Valley is home to our merlot vineyards, where we planted two clones of merlot (#181 and #6) from which we produce lush grapes power-packed with intense flavors and an abundance of bright fruit. Tasting Notes: Our Estate Grown Merlots display intense aromatics of blueberries, red berries, black fruits, and roasted nuts along with toasted oak. Medium to full-bodied, it shows a luxurious richness of sweet fruit flavors with moderate tannin levels. The bright fruit accompanies a suppleness that shows in the mouth-feel of the final wine. Although ready to drink today, our merlots are well structured and age well. Return to Corley Family Monticello Vineyards wine list
