It’s been a long time coming, but our unforgettable Suscol Ranch Merlot is back. The 2007 vintage produced some of the best fruit we’ve seen in a long time here in Napa Valley. The aromatics lead with an ample offering of cranberries and pomegranate. A velvety and rich mouthfeel supplies subtle hints of molasses and caramel to complement the essence of black cherry pie. The polished finish lingers with well formed tannins, perfect
with hearty pork tenderloin.
