Vineyard Notes

Merlot grapes, for this vintage, were grown in several of Lodi’s sub-appellations as well as the Calaveras County growing region of the Sierra Foothills. These different locations provide diverse soils and climate that, when combined, create a more complex wine than one region alone.

Winemaker Notes

The Ironstone 2013 Merlot is bursting with luscious fruit and soft tannins with excellent drinkability. Rich, ripe black cherry and black plums leads to a hint of vanilla and toast. Flavors of currants with juicy dark fruit and spicy cedar end with a rounded, well-balanced finish.

Food Pairing Notes

Our Merlot has a softer, fleshier, fruit-forward style that complements many dishes. Try it with baked pasta dishes such as lasagna, spicy rice dishes such as jambalaya, hearty bean dishes with bacon or smoked ham, roast turkey and even blackened salmon or other dense fish in a tomato-based sauce.
