Spellbound Merlot

California

Spellbound wines are sourced from winegrowing regions throughout California where warm sun and cool, moonlight nights result in expressive, approachable, balanced wines. These wines are true to their roots, expressing ripe varietal character with a style that elevates every occasion — from special events to everyday meals around the family table.

Tasting Notes

Spellbound Merlot is approachable, with deep flavors of ripe berry and balanced American oak. This wine was created to demonstrate the dark yet playful profile of Merlot with its soft tannins and rich aromatics of mixed berry pie, cocoa, cigar box and decadent leather.

Enjoy this wine on its own or with a broad range of dishes like roasted chicken, hearty pasta, grilled meats, and even beef stroganoff. Spices like garlic, oregano, bay leaf or sage also pair well.

Varietal: Merlot
Aging: American & French Oak
Alcohol: 13.5%
