Quails' Gate Winery 2014 Merlot

The warm growing season of 2014 provided us with some intensely-flavored Merlot grapes. The wine boasts aromas of rich, black cherry, smoky plum, spice and toasty oak. The palate is rich and full-bodied, with firm, structured tannins and a long finish. We suggest pairing with similarly bold foods – braised short ribs, lasagna, bison burgers and an array of aged hard cheeses.
