Merlot


                                                MERLOT

Merlot grapes produce a soft, smooth, fruit forward wine, with a medium to full body. Supple, ripe, and rich with “Sideways” notes of cherry, plum, pepper, vanilla, toasted oak, spice, and gentle tannins, this wine, unlike your spouse,  is generally ready when you are.

“The secret to enjoying a good wine:

1)   Open the bottle to let it breath.

2)   If it does not look like it is breathing, give it mouth-to-mouth.”
