Oak OriginAmerican

The Ridge Estate Merlot 2013 brims with intense red fruits and mountain brambles. The wine is a saturated ruby red in the glass, and enticing aromas of juniper, roasted coffee, cloves, and fruit waft to the nose. On tasting, the wine is complex and vivacious, with mountain bramble fruit and rich forest floor. The wine has chalky tannins and ample acidity, with spiced oak on the finish.

This Merlot will pair nicely with almost any meal that you choose. It will complement lean grilled beef and roasted chicken with grape tomatoes, among many other dishes.
