Wine of the Week: Mercer Merlot 2007 (WA) $22

By March 1, 2010

Follow me on:

This Merlot from Mercer Estates boasts big flavor and vibrant fruit. The well-developed flavors of cherry and chocolate dominate the palate, wrapped up in a lovely cloak of vanilla. Malleable tannins, soft edges and an enduring finish put the wrap on this delicious red wine treat from Washington. A stunning rendition of all that a Merlot can and should be.

    Perfect Pairings: Grilled or roasted beef, lamb or chicken and mushroom based recipes.
