2019 Ten Vines Merlot
Beautiful bright red color, this is a full bodied, fruit driven Merlot with moderate acidity. The nose and front palate both present a lot of red fruit flavors – black cherry, strawberry and plum. The mid palate has a distinct note of graphite, extremely typical for Merlot. This graphite note also contributes much body to the weight of the wine. Extremely soft tannins linger on the finish. This wine pairs well with a range of foods, but mushrooms, pungent cheeses like Bleu and Stilton, and pork are excellent accompaniments.
