Shipped and sold by The Foreign Affair Winery

2021 Niagara Peninsula 750 mL, 12.4% ALC/VOL
Critic's Rating 90 pts

Aromas of graphite, blueberry, and plum dance on the nose, while its palate of blueberry and plum are complemented by its fine tannins.

Food Pairing: Merlot 2021 is a remarkable red wine that pairs perfectly with some of your favorite dishes. Enjoy it with cheeseburgers, ratatouille, lasagna, and poultry like duck with blueberry sauce and cornish hens.
