This Merlot has pleasant violet and dark fruit aromas that lead to lush, abundant dark plum and black cherry flavors with just a hint of green olive character. Mouth-filling yet smooth, the balance in this wine is apparent. Stone Valley Merlot is an unpretentious wine that can pair with many styles of cuisine.
Excellent with many cuisines, but in particular pasta in tomato sauces, barbecued pork, chicken scaloppini, veal parmesan, and an assortment of artisan cheeses.
Blend: 85% Merlot, 9% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Cabernet Franc, 1% Petite Sirah
