2014 Merlot from Pepper Bridge and Bacchus Vineyards - 37 Cellars - 37 Cellars
Merlot has often been called a mild imitation of Cabernet Sauvignon - pleasant but not memorable. This wine, made from Bacchus Vineyards fruit, demonstrates what Merlot can be: rich, bold, aromatic and powerful. Heady aromas of dark fruits lead to sensuous pleasures on the palate. Red meats, game, dark meats of domestic fowl - all will complement it nicely.
