We’re crazy about the wines of Deerfield Ranch Winery - and so are our Operatives. In 2014, our Operatives made a Deerfield’s @Cabernet our most popular Cabernet Sauvignon of the year. That wine outsold all other Cabs by a wide margin.
Today, we proudly present you with the opportunity to enjoy another fantastic Deerfield @ wine, the delicious, balanced, juicy and very food friendly Deerfield Ranch Winery 2009 @Merlot. If you are looking for a great party wine that won’t break the bank, or a lovely weekday nightly drinker with dinner, look no further. This wine is a great choice!
Darkest garnet, with a beautiful ring of gleaming ruby at the very edge.
Bold black cherry and blackberry candy in the lead. These are closely followed by cassis, cigar box, dried violets, black pepper, cocoa nibs and a hint of sweet baking spice.
Dark and juicy, with blackberry and black cherry juice, sweet cedar, black plum, cassis, dried fall leaves, subtle spice and subtle tobacco.
Medium long, with bold black fruit that gradually tails off, leaving behind earthy elements of wood, leaves and spice.
Enjoy this very flexible wine with pasta dishes, grilled red meats, pork - or nearly anything you care to throw at it.
