Merlot brings the darker fruit flavor out and there's a mellow finish. Good for chicken to pork.

Perhaps I should have rated this wine prior to drinking the entire bottle. Anyhow, it's good! I kind of love it! Cheers to 2015!!!!

Delicious as it is every year, 2011 vintage is a bit lower in alcohol and a bright fun fruit bomb!
