Smooth and silky, the 2007 Jade Mountain Merlot is densely packed with heady aromas of ripe dark fruit laced with spice. Generous black cherry and plum flavors mingle with caramel notes and hints of Asian five-spice and cinnamon. The expansive flavors and rich texture are well structured with firm, yet approachable, tannins. Nuances of oak spices linger on the long, fruit-imbued finish. They credit the long, slow ripening period of the 2007 vintage for their Merlot’s exceptionally deep fruit flavors, supple tannins and elegant balance.
Enjoy this Merlot’s rich, harmonious flavors with roast turkey or chicken; grilled pork, lamb or beef; or mushroom risotto—or try any other pairing that tantalizes your taste buds!
