Sutter Home Merlot is fresh and easy-going—the ideal wine for cozy
conversations and old movies. Luscious black cherry aromas with hints
of tobacco and herbal spice lead to smoky black cherry and spiced
plum flavors that surrender to a long, velvety finish. Medium-bodied
with excellent structure, our Merlot is a pleasure to pour with a variety
of foods, but it’s especially tasty with herb-roasted meats and chicken,
tomato-based pastas, and pizza oozing with cheese and fresh basil.
Our Merlot is crafted from grapes selected from premier vineyards in
California’s cool coastal region and warmer inland Lodi, where the fruit
ripens slowly and evenly to produce wine that is soft, juicy and round.
Fruity, smooth, and made to be enjoyed immediately, our Merlot is first
fermented in stainless steel tanks at cool temperatures to preserve its
vivid cherry flavors and aromas. Afterwards, the wine is aged briefly in
American oak tanks to enhance its supple, silky-smooth texture.
