Food Pairings for Pietra Santa Cienega Valley Merlot
This is a Gold Medal Wine Club Gold Series selection. Pietra Santa’s 2001 Merlot is the winery’s classic estate varietal. Following an impressive history of award-winning vintages, the 2001 Merlot was awarded 90 Points – “Exceptional” – “Best Buy” from the Beverage Tasting Institute. Brilliantly ruby red hued, this Merlot is robust and intensely fruity, yet beautifully balanced. The Merlot is medium to full-bodied with bright flavors of black cherry and plum with undertones of clove, pepper and chocolate. Layers of flavor with hints of vanilla and cinnamon are expressed on the palate and a lengthy, well-structured finish shows a nice persistence of fruit. The Pietra Santa Merlot is supple and elegant in texture, and powerfully expressive with the ability to age well. Try pairing this excellent Gold Series selection with roast beef or pot roast. Aged 25 months in oak. 100% Merlot. Enjoy now until 2011.
Our estate Merlot has ripe plum, cherry and blackberry flavors with hints of cassis and cedar. The wine is full of fruit but has the body and structure to stand up to hearty dishes.
