Our wine tonight is the award winning Merlot from Parker-Binns Vineyard in Tryon, North Carolina.
Estate grown Merlot.
Tryon Foothills wine region.
Dark ruby in color with a soft garnet rim.
Decanted for one hour.
Soft bouquet of blackberry jam, red plum, tobacco, vanilla, and cedar.
Long slow cascading legs.
Medium to full bodied and velvety with lush tannins.
Dry yet fruity and complex with notes of red plums, dark cherries, raspberries, dried figs, pomegranate, boiled peanuts, damp forest, Earl Grey tea, and a lingering earthy finish.
