Estancia Merlot Red Wine 2017 showcases Paso Robles, California. Fruit from cooler Monterey County lends exquisite texture and suppleness. In contrast, fruit from Paso Robles, notable for warm days and cold nights, contributes to the concentrated fruit aroma and flavors of this Merlot. Estancia in Spanish means "estate," their name emphasizes their conviction that the world's best wines capture the essence of their place of origin (terroir).
Estancia Merlot has a deep garnet color. The aroma offers concentrated dark fruit, blueberry, vanilla, and cherry. It is well balanced with cherry, cranberry, and marzipan flavors, complemented by a lingering, toasty vanilla finish. It pairs well with smoked salmon, goat cheese, nuts, poultry, lamb, or mushrooms. Enjoy!
