Winemaker Murphy Moore Notes
Think you know Merlot? Wait until you try this! In the Yadkin Valley, we are able to showcase Merlot as it was meant to be. Not content with a softer version of Cabernet, we craft our Merlot to showcase the unique flavor and style that make this variety stand out from the crowd. Our 2008 vintage is bursting with aromas of ripe raspberries and black plum layered over rich cocoa, vanilla and spicy cigar box with a hint of rose petal and lavendar. In the mouth, the moderate tannis elegantly support a broad palate of ripe black currant all the way through a lingering finish of fine leather and black tea. Always a winner with your favorite beef dish, have some fun pairing this one. Try it with grilled Shitake mushrooms, roasted or grilled ...more... vegetables, roasted pork or barbequed duck. It's also downright delicious all by itself!
