Cave B Estate Winery

2015 XXX Merlot (our old vine Merlot)

WOW, is my first impression of this wine. Merlot has always grown well on our Cave B property and the 2015 vintage continues the streak of awesome Merlots!

Aroma: The nose of this wine is simply gorgeous with big aromas of candied chestnuts, dried Bing cherries, blackberry jam, leather and a sweet hint of an unlit cigar.  This is one of those wines that I can just swirl and sniff for hours on end, getting just as much enjoyment from the aromas as I do from drinking the wine.

Taste: The palate continues the “awesomeness” with all of those aromas showing up and really changing the order in which they present themselves with each sip. The elegant balance of flavor and texture persists with a beautiful, long and lingering finish. 

Food Pairing: This wine would be wonderful with smoked red meat or tender braised short ribs. For those who don’t eat meat, hearty roasted root vegetables are amazing with this wine as well. 

Cases Produced: only 124
