Aromas of black cherries, fresh plums, violet and dark chocolate overwhelm the bouquet. On the palate, the wine is layered with fresh cherries, plums, and mocha, softened by its delicate texture, and given staying power with a long, raspberry and cocoa powder finish (Fresh, Plum, Cherry, Medium-bodied) Merlot is a perfect match for beef and other medium-heavy dishes. It pairs wonderfully with rich, red pasta sauces, pork, turkey, beef, veal, pheasant, and garden salads. Merlot is also an excellent compliment to chocolate.
