    Winemaker's Notes:

    Let's get down to brass tacks. This Merlot is about the purity of the varietal flavors and California terroir. Brass Tacks Merlot offers tasty red berry and ripe cherry fruit with hints of spice and vanilla from nicely integrated oak. The California Central Coast's high winds, dry days and cool ocean fogs create a long growing season, leading to full, forward fruit flavors and ideal acidity.

    Food Pairings: Smooth and versatile, Brass Tacks Merlot is a very food friendly wine that pairs well with red meats, grilled salmon, poultry and heavy meat sauces.

    Gold Medal - The Brass Tacks Merlot was awarded a Gold Medal in the 2010 San Diego International Wine Competition after being reviewed by a panel international wine critics.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Bone dry, with brisk tannins, this is a Merlot to drink with good food and not worry about the wine overshadowing it. It’s really drinkable, with a soft, lush mouthfeel and flavors of cherries, currants, spices and cedar. Editor's Choice

    This is a big, juicy Merlot with nice balance and great length. The '06 vintage was awarded "Publishers Pick" from Tasting Panel and I think this wine is every bit as good.

    Rich ripe fruit up front and silky smooth. Very drinkable and food friendly.
