Cloverdale Ranch Merlot
Cloverdale Ranch Merlot
Alexander Valley, Sonoma

2008 S0NOMA COUNTY HARVEST FAIR “BEST OF CLASS” AWARD WINNER. Merlot from the renowned Pellegrini Family Vineyards. Elegant and restrained, and has really benefitted from 20 months of aging in a combination of American and Hungarian oak barrels. Plump and voluptuous with a long, velvety finish. With a nose of black cherries and allspice that continues right onto the palate, this is a wine with a rich and robust core that should be served with leaner cuts of meat. A great deal of care went into the production of this wine, and we feel it is representative of the best Merlot that Alexander Valley has to to offer.
Serving Suggestions
Perfect table red, especially if paired with filet mignon or other lean cuts of beef. Delightful.
