Tasting Notes:
You “don’t typically drink Merlot”, you say? Well, this wine will blow your mind. A bright, complex, fruit driven beauty that shows off a translucent, deep ruby at first glance. The nose is filled with layered aromas of dark cherry, sweet bakeshop spice, vanilla, sage and hints of mocha and leather. The balance is simply delightful, with fruit, acidity, tannins and alcohol working together in perfect harmony. Medium to full bodied with a silky, velvety texture on the palate. You’ll find chocolate-covered cherry, dark chocolate and plum building on the mid-palate all the way through the smooth, lingering finish.

Food Pairing Suggestions:
Typically smoother in texture and tannins, Merlots are fairly versatile when it comes to food pairings. Give this rich, full-bodied Merlot a try with cheeseburgers, Italian sausage and fennel, spaghetti or lasagna with meat sauce, pizza, roasted turkey or lamb, or even a braised short rib. For cheeses, lean towards mild to medium hard styles like Cheddar, Asiago or Parmesan.
About the Winery
Juslyn Vineyards What started out as a weekend getaway to wine country suddenly became a dream come true in 1997. Perry and Carolyn Butler opened Juslyn Vineyards as a return to the land and a transition away from the corporate world. Juslyn Vineyards' idyllic location on Spring Mountain in Napa allows the Butlers to make incredibly complex and structured wines and satisfy their philanthropic hearts at the same time. Learn more
