Blackstone Sonoma Reserve Merlot 2007
Blend: 85% Merlot, 7% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Ruby Cabernet and 2% Petit Verdot
The moderate 2007 season created wines like this cool, mouthwatering red. It's neither fussy nor ambitious; it just tastes clean and bright, lasting with the flavor of cherries slowly ripened in the shade. Give it some time in a decanter to shed an initial scent of dill and expand on it's berry-rich length, then serve with chopped sirloin off the grill.

From the start, our goal has been to produce smooth, flavorful, harmonious wines with rich fruit, supple texture, and balanced oak. Early on, this approach found its ideal expression in our Merlot, which soon became — and still remains — America's favorite Merlot.
