Merlot

Wine Notes

1948 by Sutter Home Merlot is lush and velvety, brimming with generous fresh fruit flavors. Ripe black cherry aromas with hints of tobacco and herbal spice lead to smoky black cherry and spiced plum flavors on the palate, and a plush, lingering finish. Medium-bodied with soft tannins and a round mouthfeel, our Merlot pairs well with many foods, but makes an exceptional partner for herb-roasted meats and chicken, plank-grilled salmon, hearty spaghetti Bolognese, and earthy mushroom risotto.
