2015 Merlot 1.5L

Exhibiting an extraordinary dark color for 100% Merlot, the 2015 vintage opens up with breathing, showing aromas of cranberry, cherry and dark cocoa. There are also subtle oak nuances lifting to a floral bouquet of rose petals. Powerful and expanding, this wine offers plenty of savory flavors to balance pleasant fruit, with thyme and oil-cured black olive dancing with red currant and cassis.

“A beautiful Merlot, the 2015 Merlot offers classic notes of black cherries, dark chocolate and roasted herbs in a supple, full-bodied, sexy, rounded style. It picks up some graphite and licorice with time in the glass, has present tannin and a great mid-palate”

Butternut Squash Risotto with Black Truffles

This is a very cool dish because it is vegetarian, yet the cheese and truffles bump it up to a red wine pairing. It is perfect with Merlot. For the carnivorous, add a short rib on top. Vegetarian or not, everyone is happy. Do not fear the truffle. As with many things, they are available on the internet for most of year.
