Food pairing notes

Merlot is renowned as an excellent wine for pairing with food. When crafted in a medium-bodied style, Merlot is a perfect match for an array of delicious dishes. From succulent duck and comforting meatloaf to classic pizza and mouthwatering chicken and beef, Merlot complements them all. It also pairs wonderfully with cheese, snacks, fish, vegetarian food, and pasta. With its plush and juicy flavors of plum and cherries, Merlot tantalizes the palate and delights with hints of bittersweet chocolate and smoky notes, creating a truly seductive red wine. Thanks to its moderate tannins and balanced acidity, Merlot is a winner with a wide variety of dishes, making it a fantastic choice for large events featuring roast beef, lasagna, pork chops, and turkey.
