The Kay Brothers Basket Pressed Merlot 2012 brims with complex flavor and savory aromas. Notes of blackberry, beetroot, bacon fat, mocha, and cloves abound on the nose and palate. The tannins are ripe, dusty, and artfully integrated into this formidable red wine.

This Merlot was barrel aged for 12 months in French and Bulgarian wood barrels (10% new). This aging allows the lush fruit flavors of this wine to shine, while imparting complex spice flavor and rich mouthfeel. Enjoy this red wine on its own or with a variety of dinner menus.
