Our Talmage Cellars California Merlot displays red fruit aromas of raspberry and strawberry. There are also interesting flavors that develop, such as smoked meat and bacon, which come from toasted oak barrels. This dry wine showcases nice, lengthy tannins. This wine is a classic representation of a great Merlot: easygoing and charming with a good amount of tannins and a long-lasting, lingering finish.
This Merlot is very versatile and can be enjoyed with pasta dishes such as lasagna, grilled tuna fish, chicken or roasted pork loin. Try it with the featured recipe: Thanksgiving Dinner Cupcakes.
