Winemaker Joe Kidd Notes
Inviting and immediately enjoyable, the 2005 Merlot welcomes the nose with bright cherry, blackberry and vanilla aromas counterbalanced with subtle cherry-cola notes.

On the palate, mouth filling cherry-berry tannins fold together with rich flavors of blackberry pie and juicy plum to offer a nice, rounded mouthfeel and a long finish.

The generosity of this wine pairs well with a variety of dishes from slightly spicy Mexican food to good ol’ home-cooked chicken pot pie.
