2017 / Red

2017 MERLOT

The 2017 JUSTIN Merlot shows a serious side of this popular grape variety. In the past, the merlot grape had received a reputation as a soft, cushy, easygoing variety, but the 2017 JUSTIN Merlot proves that it can stand on its own. Full-bodied with ripe fruit, and a classic Bordeaux savory character and firm tannins, this wine is a complex and serious version of Merlot that announces to the world that this is a grape variety with serious intentions.

Tasting notes

Appearance: Clear, bright with a moderate ruby/purple core showing a black hue with moderate plus viscosity and slow forming, lightly stained tears on

Aroma: Aromatic with ripe, lush black cherry cassis and plum fruit, vanilla and cinnamon spice, cocoa, sweet tobacco with oak notes and a hint of cedar.

Palate: Full bodied, with plush ripe black fruit of cherry plum and blackcurrant with oak and baking spice on entry. The mid-palate shows savory elements of chocolate, dry autumn leaves over sustained ripe fruit with building firm, soft tannins leading into a lengthy finish showing black fruit, wood and sweet spice.


Food pairings

Plush and full bodied, pair the JUSTIN 2017 Merlot with a classic beef pot roast, or other flavorful dishes like a grilled portobello mushroom with Val d’Aosta Fontina cheese panini.
