This wine’s versatile, spicy, dark Bing cherry and bitter chocolate flavors make this Merlot perfect for drinking on the patio during chilly late summer and fall nights. Its lush, mouthwatering acidity and medium to full-bodied structure pair well with hearty meats and gamebirds with rich, glistening sauces, creamy squash soups, tomato bisque, and triple creme cheeses.
