August 2022 Wine of the Month
Merlot is one of the world’s most popular red wines, ranging from worldwide famed regions like Bordeaux and Napa Valley, as well as up and coming appellations in Chile, Australia, and South Africa. Here in the USA, the Lodi region in California has become an interesting growing area for Merlot wines with remarkable fruity flavors and balanced acidity. We added a touch of Carmenere to give smoothness and spiciness to the wine. Enjoy this elegant and fruity Merlot with roast chicken, macaroni and cheese, or risotto.
