Redemption for Merlot

For those faithful Locals Blog followers that live in Sonoma County and read the Press Democrat Merlot Rising article you were probably as pleased as I was to read it in the Food and Wine section about Merlot. Many people credit the movie “Sideways” with starting a downward trend in Merlots but who knows Food and Wines are cyclical as are most things in life and perhaps as the article mentions Merlots time is about to happen again. As you know Merlot has soft tannins that make it an easy pairing with almost all food groups. Locals good news for Club Member’s and faithful Blog followers is that we have two excellent Merlots available here at the tasting room. First is the Andrew Peacock Merlot that is curently on SALE! That’s right on SALE for only $12.00 a bottle for non-members, and $10.20 a bottle and $9.60 a bottle for two bottle and six bottle club members respectively while stock lasts. Andrew Peacock is a medium weight Merlot with well balanced acid and tannins and will go great with your Easter Lamb or Ham dinners as well as artisan cheese pairings.

The Praxis Merlot is also a great value at $19.00 a bottle for non club members and $16.15 a bottle and $15.20 a bottle for two bottles and six bottle club members respectively. The color is a deep red with purple highlights. The nose offers vanilla, black cheery and plum with warm spices and dry herbs. This merlot is sleek and elegant with good and acidity and full mouthfeel. Flavors of strawberry, blackberry, pomegranate and cassis are complemented by vanilla and spice. Try a bottle of Praxis Merlot with slow cooked lamb shanks, artisan cheeses or roasted chicken and you will not be sorry.

The good news is we can also ship these wines to you or as Easter gifts for friends in all approved states so even members and bloggers can take part in the Merlot revival that is starting. If you’re local stop by and sample some wines and pick up some Merlot. Both of these Merlots make a perfect gift bottle to take to friends for dinner and entertainment as they will pair with practically everything and your hosts will not be disappointed.
