Straight-forward in style, the Leaping Horse 2018 Merlot has violet and dark fruit aromas with plums, black cherry, cocoa vanilla, and sweet oak character creeping into the flavor. Mouth-filling yet smooth, Leaping Horse has created an unpretentious wine that can pair with just about anything.
Merlot is a very versatile red that works well with many types of meats. Try ours with roast turkey or chicken, grilled blackened salmon, meat sauced pasta dishes, pork, grilled vegetables, or a steak salad.
Blend: 85% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc, 10% Cab Sauvignon
