The Merlot 2017 is a smooth, medium bodied red that is always a crowd pleaser. We source the fruit for this vintage from Zugibe Vineyards on the east side of Seneca Lake. The wine is then aged for 15 months in a combination of older and newer French, Hungarian and American oak barrels.We then blend in 25% of our Cabernet Franc to enhance the finished wine by increasing depth and structure. 

Winemakers Note: Zugibe Vineyards started in 2005 has grown into a 40-acre estate, comprised of 11 different varietals, including Riesling, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, Gewürztraminer, Pinot Gris, Chardonnay, Merlot, Lemberger, Sauvignon Blanc and Grüner Veltliner.

 Food Pairing Notes: Spaghetti and meatballs. Bean dishes with smoked ham or chorizo. Jambalaya. Cheeseburgers.
