Rombauer Carneros Merlot 2010
An opaque, crimson red color coats the glass. Vibrant and concentrated aromas of tobacco and cedar intertwine with plum and boysenberry. Medium to full bodied, the wine shows elegance and structure as it spreads across the palate, subtle tannins round out the texture. Clean finish with hints of red berry fruit. Drink now through 2018.
Our favorite Joy of Cooking pairing for this wine includes braised lamb shank, herb-rubbed turkey with corn bread dressing, or winter squash mac & cheese.
