Dante Merlot Reserve 2010
|Wine maker notes
|This tasty Merlot has a deep plum color and a hint of brick edges. The aromas are ripe blueberry and cocoa with a cassis lining. The palate features ripe huckleberry and raspberry flavors, but the beauty of this wine is that the fruit folds elegantly into the silk oak finish and parts with tannin, fruit and vanilla extract.
This is a terrific red wine as an aperitif or everyday red sipper. Try it with eggplant parmesan or hearty cheeses like aged Vermont white cheddar or Stilton.
