2018 Merlot “Garden”
Varietal: Merlot, from Ranchita Canyon Vineyard
Oak: Neutral Hungarian/American oak for 24 months
A smooth wine with moderate levels of tannin and acidity, this wine is a pleasurable experience. Cherry and plum on the nose, with violet and cassis on the palate through the finish. Pair this wine with smoky ribs, smoked salmon, or just a beautiful evening.
On the Label: Navy Nurse Natalie McCormick, currently in San Antonio, Tx, captured this gorgeous garden while traveling in Amsterdam, Netherlands.
