Our new Credia 2018 Merlot (cred-ee-aah) was made with grapes from the Lodi area. This is a dry, stylish red wine that showcases plenty of dark fruit aromas such as black currant, blueberry, plum and blackberry. There is a hint of tobacco and toasted oak on the palate. This is a medium-intensity young wine with round tannins. There is some length and harmony in the finish due to a great balance between color, acidity and alcohol.
This Merlot is a fantastic candidate for pairing with savory pastries, meat stews, pasta, meatloaf or a cheese platter. Enjoy it with the featured recipe: Puff Pastry Turkey Pot Pies.
