Chateau Ste Michelle Merlot 2017
The wine offers aromas of black cherry, leather and spice with layers of rich dark red fruit flavors and a long, smooth, sweet finish. A touch of Syrah adds a jammy fruit character. I think of this wine as a great “everyday red.
Pairs well with beef, lamb, grilled salmon, and hearty pastas.
Blend: 80% Merlot, 13% Syrah, 2% Mourvedre, 1% Cabernet Sauvignon, 1% Petit Verdot, 1% Malbec, 1% Grenache, 1% Pinot Noir
