A Bordeaux style blend of 88% Merlot, 7% Cab Sauvignon, 3% Cab Franc, and 2% Petit Verdot make our second label Merlot quite an interesting wine. Aged 10 months in 15% new French oak barrels, this wine is one of the biggest Bridge Lane wines we have ever produced. A deep purple color and dark fruit aromas of plum, blueberry, and blackberry entice the nose. A rich mid-palate is complimented by a finish of integrated tannins and balanced acidity. This is still a great every-day red that will pair with everything from grilled meats to pizza or pasta.
