They know Merlot
Bruce Wayne Winery is the sister label of one of our most popular boutique wine producers, Starry Night Winery. We’ve been featuring Starry Night for the last 6 years and their wines are always a big hit with our Operatives. When we learned of their Bruce Wayne label, we leapt at the chance to taste through their line-up of wines. They are all fantastic. And budget-priced!
Today’s Bruce Wayne Winery 2011 Napa Valley Reserve Merlot is a rich, delicious and elegant wine. A fantastic foodie wine, this wonderful Merlot is also a great solo sipper.
If you love great Merlot, please do not hesitate to take advantage of this offer on today’s excellent wine.
Translucent garnet with a very slightly opaque core. At the edge, a fine ring of ruby around the wine.
Cherry, strawberry and raspberry are followed by sweet spice, toasty and woodsy notes, blueberry, and pencil shavings.
Very flavorful but not over-the-top, with plenty of dark berry fruit that is more compote than fresh fruit. Blackberry, raspberry, pomegranate and dusky cherry are followed by hints of toasty oak and a hint of dried herbs.
Long and very flavorful, with dark berry fruits that dwindle slowly. Blueberry and soft cedar linger the longest.
Enjoy this very food-friendly wine with a variety of foods, including a dark beef roast or an herb-roasted chicken.
