Cocoa dusted red cherry balanced with youthful tannins and bright acidity.
Style #: 140
Our 2015 Yadkin Valley Merlot has aromas of cocoa, chocolate covered cherry, and subtle black ground peppercorn. The flavors are balanced with youthful tannins and bright acidity integrated through to its finish. Mild spice notes and medium body meld with nuanced oak and austere but ripe fruit for a true-to-type painting of Yadkin Valley Merlot. This well balanced red wine will awaken your palate with its lively character.
Enjoy this versatile red at slightly below room temperature with oven roasted chicken or grilled pork tenderloin.
