Fat Bastard Merlot

October 9, 2008
Leave a Comment

Origin: Languedoc region of Southern France.

Grape variety: 100% Merlot

Vinification: To make the Fat bastard Merlot we source fruit from all over the Languedoc area known for its stony soil, which naturally limits yields giving the Merlot ripe, fruity character and mature tannins.

Tasting notes: Rich and dense, the complexity of the flavors plays out progressively, beginning with blackberry and plum and finishing with toasty cedar aromas. Tannins are ripe, juicy and delicate.

Food Pairings: Enjoy with roasted chicken, blackened salmon, or semi-soft and herbed cheeses.
