Even the finickiest of Cabernet Sauvignon drinkers will be drawn to this Californian Merlot. Aromas and flavors of black cherry, blueberry, and blackberry pop from the glass, with just a kiss of toasty vanilla. This wine pairs perfectly with a charbroiled filet or a grilled burger. In the words of winemaker Dave Ready, Jr., “This is no wimpy Merlot.”
Winemaker Dave Ready Jr. is the embodiment of the Murphy-Goode philosophy, a serious winery built around a common concept: don't take life so seriously. He is a master of balance—evaluating and integrating each barrel to create a blend that is greater than the sum of its parts. He has a talent for smoothing out the edges of each component to ensure consistent, yet complex wines.
