Grape variety: 80% Merlot, 17% Cabernet Franc, 3% Petit Verdot

Producer: L’Ecole Winery

Alcohol content: 14.5%

Origin: Washington, USA

Notes: Layered with enticing aromas of black plum, espresso, violet and red flower, this full bodied Merlot shows a robust core of dried cherry, blackberry, and baking spice on a seamless finish of fine-grained yet firm tannin.

Critical acclaim

Vinous / Antonio Galloni - "Medium red. Red cherry, plum, bitter chocolate and licorice on the nose, with complicating hints of violet and pepper. Good spicy cut to the dark berry and violet flavors. Harmonious ripe acidity and an element of salinity keep the wine fresh but not green. Serious wine for $30; and there are about 5,000 cases of this juice. Clubb noted that Seven Hills provides 40% of his total production and that this fruit goes into virtually all of his wines."

Food Pairing: Lamb Burgers, Meatloaf, Beef Stew
