Master Vintner Limited Edition 2016: Cherie Merlot PRE-ORDER

SKU: 43157

Cherie Merlot:
Warm, friendly, lush, a red wine of pleasure and open character

Dry, medium bodied, soft and supple. A palate of boysenberry, plums and ripe black cherries, leading to a spicy aroma, accentuated with light warm oak and a rich, round mouthfeel, along with a warm, lush finish. Tempting to drink young, the black cherry notes will show better after six months to a year, and it will age surprisingly well for such an approachable wine.

Excellent with poultry and grilled meats, but goes well with many foods, such as tomato-based pasta sauces or lamb chops and shows spectacularly with rare prime rib

The Region: Bordeaux

master vintner bordeaux wineIf vintners and merchants worked together to custom design the ideal wine region, they would produce Bordeaux. Nestled in a natural crossroads between land, river and sea in the Southwest of France, the mild climate and well-drained soil provide the perfect environment for growing the three big grapes of Bordeaux -- Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Sauvignon Blanc.

It’s actually Bordeaux’s unique location that influenced how these grapes came to be made into wine. As a major shipping port since ancient times, Bordeaux was host to the world’s very first trade expositions. And that bred a culture of clever merchants who realized that if the grapes were vinified separately and then ‘assembled’ within a few months of fermentation, they could guarantee a steady supply of wines with consistent character…even in years with challenging weather. Voilà…The complex, engaging character of Bordeaux wines was born!

The Wine: Cherie Merlot

Luxuriously ripe and soft, and this oh-so-approachable merlot is a wine of pleasure and open character. A rich ruby red in hue, it features aromas of juicy blueberries, cherries and a touch of spice on the nose, with ripe boysenberry, plum, black cherries, and soft tannins on the palate. You’ll also note accents of warm oak and a rich, round mouthfeel, along with a warm, lush finish. Dry, medium bodied, soft and supple. Tempting to drink young, the black cherry notes will show better after six months to a year.

Excellent with poultry and grilled meats, but goes well with many foods, such as tomato-based pasta sauces or lamb chops and shows spectacularly with rare prime rib.
