Ferrari-Carano Merlot 2012
Select lots of grapes are chosen from our vineyards in Sonoma County to create this beautifully-balanced and medium-bodied Merlot. This is a velvety wine with a complex nose of fresh-picked raspberry, plum, blueberry pie, cedar and dark cocoa. A fleshy and generous mouthfeel is followed by flavorful notes of red cherry, smoky caramel cinnamon, mocha, espresso and toasty vanilla. With full, generous tannins that coat the palate, this wine has impressive length, lasting acidity and a soft, elegant finish. Food Pairings: The fruit forward, easy drinking qualities of our Merlot make it the perfect wine to pair with any red meat course, Italian entrées, and roasted or grilled fragrantly-spiced poultry dishes.
