Lamar Family Estates, Merlot 2012, Creekside Vineyards, Lodi, California
Tasting Note: A soft and smooth merlot.
This ruby-colored merlot has a nose of blackberry and strawberry with some violet notes and baking spice aromas.
Aromas on the nose carry to the palate.
Bottle Note: “Golf is a microcosm for life. One’s success depends on how they deal with the situation at hand.” Spicy cherry aroma with flavors of ripe strawberries and anise seed. This wine explodes with vibrancy. The flavors would complement braised short ribs beautifully.
