Mendocino's Merlots mix a range of fresh flavors such as plums, cherries, blueberries, blackberries and blackpepper tones into this smooth red wine. The tannin levels are fairly low and the fruit flavors make this a good wine for those just "getting into" red wines.
Merlot will pair well with Poultry, red meat, pork, pastas, salads - just about anything.
