Cru International Washington Merlot

About This Wine

Aromas of sweet cherry and vanilla introduce this Merlot. The silky palate displays flavours of red berries, juicy plums and a touch of caramel and mocha; the finish is soft and begs you to drink more.

Fast Fact

In the past five years, Washington Merlot has been pushed to the shadows – a little – by the rise of Cabernet Sauvignon. But in Washington, Merlot is a big, bold red, providing structure to many wines.

Food Pairings

In general Merlot pairs well with chicken and other light meats as well as lightly-spiced dark meats. With medium tannin and not too much acidity you’ll find Merlot pairs well with many foods.
