The Villa Maria Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot 2009 is a luxurious red wine, full of deep fruit flavors and aromas. A dark purple in the glass, the nose shows tight layers of red plum and cassis, with roasted coffee beans, dried thyme, and cedar spice. The palate is full-flavored and smooth, with nicely integrated tannins and oak. This wine will cellar well through 2022.
Enjoy this wine with a variety of robust meals. It will pair well with red meat dishes, roasts, and other hearty foods.
