Mission Codename Steak, please!
We’re always on the lookout for a great Merlot here - especially during grilling season. With it’s juicy fruit flavors and subtle structure, the varietal is one of our go-tos when planning an evening around the barbecue.
We were thrilled when we discovered today’s outstanding Mazzocco Winery 2009 Dry Creek Valley Merlot before summer was out. It has the ripe, juicy fruit notes that we look for, plus a gentle kick of soft earth and spice to give it a touch of complexity.
Be sure to stock up on today’s 40% off delight. We can sense an Indian Summer - and extended grill time - ahead!
