Ferrari-Carano Merlot 2014
Select lots of grapes are chosen from our vineyards in Sonoma County to create this beautifully-balanced and medium-bodied Merlot. This is a velvety wine with a complex nose of plum, chocolate spice, dark berries, coffee, caramel and cedar. A fleshy mouthfeel is followed by flavors of bright, upfront, red fruit, a structured mid-palate and a firm backbone of ripe tannins. This wine has impressive length and a lasting, elegant finish. Food Pairing: The fruit forward, easy drinking qualities of our Merlot make it the perfect wine to pair with any red meat course, Italian entrées, and roasted or grilled fragrantly-spiced poultry dishes.
Wine AdvocateThe 2014 Merlot sports a deep garnet color and offers rather innocuous, vague plum, tar and black forest cake notes with a medium body, soft tannins and fruity finish.
