Merlot

Overview

In 2014 Texas Grape Growers had a difficult year with climatic conditions. As a result of cold winter weather and late spring frost, most growers experienced moderate to severe crop loss.

Llano Estacado grape growers experienced this misfortune with most varieties which led to the 2014 vintage Merlot losing Texas Appellation. Subsequently, this wine is composed of 96% Merlot, from the Luna Rossa Vineyard in Deming New Mexico and 4% Sangiovese from the Texas High Plains.

This wine possesses softer tannins with a bouquet displaying notes of red berries and plum. Full in flavor, Merlot is perfect on its own or with a variety of meals. Perfect with prime rib or a filet mignon. Serve Merlot at a cool room temperature (58-70F) with meat or pasta dishes. Enjoy!
