The Merriam Vineyards Windacre Estate Merlot 2011 is an opulent red wine that has plenty of berry flavor. The wine is deep ruby red in the glass and displays aromas of raspberry, dried black cherry, and accents of vanilla. The palate is rich and viscous, with persistent notes of cherry, cassis, and red berry. This wine has a rich amount of fruit flavor, but a medium acidity and light tannins keep this vintage approachable and perfect with a variety of dinner menus. This wine will also age well in the cellar.
