Noble Vines 181 Merlot 2015
|Region||California, Central Valley, Lodi|
Noble Vines Merlot 181 is an expressive Merlot - softer tannins than Cabernet Sauvignon, but equal in elegance and flavor concentration. It opens with plush black cherry aromas, with a palate of cherries, baked plums, black olive and hints of clove and nutmeg, and toasty oak. Merlot 181 is medium-bodied, supple in texture and provides a long, lingering finish. Its gentle balance of tannins and acidity makes it a perfect companion for pasta with sausage and roasted peppers or pan-seared steak with sautéed mushrooms.
