Ryder Estate Merlot Red Wine 2016 has crafted from their sustainably-farmed estate vineyards on California's golden Central Coast. It has aged in French and American Oak and Stainless Steel tanks. It is savory, ripe, and velvety. Black fruit and blueberry aromas lead into flavors of ripe plum and raspberry with vanilla notes. The tannins are soft and integrated, leading into a satisfying finish with hints of mocha and spice.
This Merlot has bottled at 13.5% alcohol by volume. It pairs well with lamb sliders with tzatziki sauce, your grandma's famous spaghetti, or a night in the lodge after a day on the slopes. Enjoy!
