2010 Merlot is another example of a great wine from a great harvest year. These grapes came from Silver Creek Vineyard when we first started working with their crop. It is medium-bodied wine with softer tannins than it's Bordeaux style relatives. Merlot pairs well with Italian sausages, lams, and beef stews as well as hearty pasta dishes. It is also great with Gouda, provolone, and Monterey Jack cheese.
