$30.00
($20.00 MEMBER)
We’ve sourced several wines from this prominent region…every one of them a new DC favorite.
Description

The Merlot grape is capable of producing elegant, world-class wines that are soft and approachable when young. The flavor profile is much like Cabernet Sauvignon, but more elegant and refined. You can enjoy and share this selection right away…and we hope you do.

 

The deep, dense, ruby color is a bit darker than many Merlots, promising bold flavors. Very climate-driven on the nose, with deeply concentrated warm earth aromas predominant. Flavors of baked raspberry, blackberry, and spice spread across the midpalate, and linger almost forever on the finish.

GRILLED STRIP STEAK WITH HERBS DE PROVENCE

As we know, the richer the wine the richer the food. The savory herbs de Provence blend (usually basil, fennel, marjoram, parsley, rosemary, tarragon, and thyme) will set off and complement the subtle spice and herbal notes in the Merlot.
