Our wine tonight is the Reserve Merlot from Red Rock Winery.
Vinted by Red Rock Winery in Modesto, California.
We’ve found notes though without confirmation of less than five percent Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Sirah blended in.
Inky purple in color with a soft purple rim.
Nose of red plum, strawberry, raspberry, cherry, and soft vanilla and herbal tones.
Medium-full bodied and smooth with soft tannins.
Dominant flavor notes of black plum, with hints of blackberry, raspberry, and cherry with a delicate oak and vanilla finish.
This is a very approachable Merlot of California.
We paired with Italian at favorite local Italian restaurant.
