Grape variety: 100% Merlot

Producer: Robert Keenan Winery

Alcohol content: 14.5%

Origin: California, USA

Notes: The '12 Merlot has been aged in thirty-three percent new French and American oak barrels for eighteen months. The resulting wine shows intense aromas of black cherry, blackberry, and cassis. Complex nuances of cocoa and coffee bean emerge as the wine opens up. This is a "big" Merlot that will age for many years to come.

Critical acclaim 

Wine & Spirits - "Good merlot can often seem workmanlike, this one satisfied to hit fragrant notes of ripe cherries with clarity. It’s not pushed, and though there’s oak present in the tannins, it frames the fruit well."

Food Pairing: Cheeses, Grilled Flat-Iron Steak, Roasted Pork Loin
