The Merlo 2012 Zinfandel comes from the Merlo Family Estate Vineyards in the Hyampom Valley of Trinity County, a very northern wine growing appellation in California. This wine is well structured with deep, elegant, and yet, fresh fruit flavors, reflecting the varietal character and distinct terroir of the Valley. A very floral nose of red fruits and spice leads to a soft and gentle mouthfeel, supported by fresh acidity and a surprisingly long finish. Try pairing this Zinfandel with mushroom risotto or chipotle-lime rubbed pork loin.
