Bonterra Merlot 2019
A dazzling deep mahogany red with a glint of purple, this Merlot's lovely hue sets the stage for a generous palate of rich, ripe fruit. Aromas of blueberry and plum leap from the glass, layered over a subtle thread of graphite, pencil shaving and a suggestion of dried herbs. This medium-bodied wine has an elegant tannin structure and a long, velvety-smooth finish
Concentrated flavors of blueberries and blackberries are nicely framed by moderate tannins in this dry wine that's been bolstered with 13% Petite Sirah. A full body and lightly gripping texture set it up nicely for pairing with big proteins.
