Mission Briefing

Codename:

¡Viva Arroba!

Today’s budget-minded Deerfield Ranch 2010 “@” Merlot is a wine that drinks above its price class - making it a real steal. This wine is flavorful, bright and a real food-friendly marvel.

This wine is very fragrant and full on the nose, with aromas of spiced cherry, black cherry candy, blackberry preserve, spice box, cedar, toasty oak and a hint of black pepper.

Bold flavors cascade across the palate, with spiced cherry hard candy, blackberry compote, black cherry reduction, dried fall leaves, dusty bramble, spice box, subtle tobacco leaf and subtle black pepper.

The @ or ‘Arroba’ label is Deerfield’s covert second label. These wines are built to deliver terrific value at a low price. Reserve yours soon, as our Deerfield wines have been regularly selling out before day’s end…

Tasting Profile

Look:

Dark and slightly opaque, with a bouncy surface. Tall skinny tears move down the glass wall after a good swirl.

Smell:

Spiced cherry, black cherry candy, blackberry preserve, spice box, cedar, toasty oak and a hint of black pepper.

Taste:

Spiced cherry hard candy, blackberry compote, black cherry reduction, dried fall leaves, dusty bramble, spice box, subtle tobacco leaf and subtle black pepper.

Finish:

Cool and light on initial entry, then the bold flavors of the wine cascade across the palate. Sweet fruit becomes tart, spicy, earthy and woodsy as plush tannins spread a uniform dryness across the entire palate.

Pairing:

Enjoy this very bright, very food-friendly wine with tangy BBQ, a juicy burger, lamb chops or almost anything else.
