It’s BACK! This grape from the Iberian Peninsula was a huge hit In its first 2013 release. This wine provides a counterpoint to the Wreckless selections where folks have discovered earthy, sagey, mushroomy, and tea flavors. Great dark color and tannins gives this wine flexibility as enjoyable alone or with hearty meals.
Blend and Vineyard
Shaker Ridge Vineyard El Dorado, 5% Merlot, 5% Sangiovese.
Shaker Ridge Vineyard El Dorado County, 10% Merlot.
Elizabeth and Andy’s grapes are showing incredible consistency year in and year out. Loaded with crisp cherry flavors, the shot of Merlot provides a background canvas of elegant tannins. Another wine to enjoy with a range of dishes from pasta to scaloppini but also enjoyed sipping in the cool Delta Breeze.
Bob Gibson Vineyard, Mendocino County, 5% Merlot
Long standing club members are well aware of the quality wine produced from Bob’s grapes as this wine sells out very quickly! The depth of flavors in this wine were so tantalizing that the WBs agreed to only a minimal blend of Merlot just to provide a more lasting finish. Pasta, Pasta, more Pasta!
