  • Lamb Burger

Fire up the grill and enjoy these delicious burgers with our Avant-Garde Merlot.

If you haven't tried our Merlot, you don't know what you're missing! Booming aromas of blackberry cobbler, anise, and violets lead to a plush palate of tobacco leaf and cocoa powder. Still Winemaker TJ Evans describes this exquisite small-lot wine from a truly legendary vineyard - the perfect match for this Grilled Lamb Burger!

Pro Tip: Serve your Merlot slightly chilled by placing the bottle in the fridge for 30 minutes before opening.
