This wine opens up beautifully within a few minutes of pouring into a glass. Aromas of raspberry and black cherry followed by tobacco leaf, saddle leather, and hot brick. On the palate one encounters notes of damson plum, baked cherry, and candied fruit. While this 2020 vintage shows well in its youth, additional cellar time up to 10 years is possible with its firm acidity and will allow this wine to uncoil in the bottle.
Our winemaker suggests pairing the 2020 Avant-Garde Merlot with rich meats like grilled rib-eye and baby lamb chops, or also with classic French ratatouille.
Varietal: 100% Carneros Merlot
Alcohol %: 14.7
