Terroir Cellars 2017 Pays d’Oc, France Merlot


SKU: 02-0042 Categories: ,

Our Terroir Cellars 2017 Merlot was produced in the Pays d’Oc region of France. Partially aged for a few months in oak barrels, this wine has a very impressive color in the glass; it is very dark and rich. There are expressions of oak flavor but dark red fruit dominates such as cherry, raspberry and black currant. This Merlot has smoky and meaty characteristics and is very aromatic for such a young wine. This wine is rich in color and intensity both in the nose and the mouth. The barrel treatment provides extra layers of flavor and complexity. The mouth reveals very good tannins, especially after ageing. A hint of acidity will definitely keep this compact wine vital over the next few years.

Decant this wine and then pair it with roasted chicken, turkey, game meat or slow-cooked meat stew. Try it with the featured recipe: Cornish Game Hen with Quick Rice Pilaf.
