The 2001 Merriam Vineyards, Windacre Vineyard Merlot is rich scarlet in color, tantalizes the nose, and pleases the palate from the first sip through the long-lasting finish.
This superb Merlot received a Double Gold Medal at the Taster’s Guild International Wine Competition and a Gold Medal at the Riverside International Wine Competition. The Wine Country Living magazine awarded the Merlot 91 Points.
Wine Enthusiast magazine’s whopping rating of a 93 Points describes this wine the best— “A great Merlot that completely satisfies for its dryness, its firm, ripe tannins, and its lush interplay of blackberry, cherry, tobacco, and dark chocolate flavors. The finish goes on forever. As tannic as it is, it will be fine with a nice steak, or you can stick it in the cellar for a few years and let it soften.”
This wine pairs well with any of the foods traditionally paired with Merlot, from blueberries, wild rice and Portobello mushrooms to barbecued or braised beef.
