This Sleeping Bear Winery Merlot is a wine that we have previously reviewed. We purchased a case of red wine from this winery (Cherry Creek Cellars) and included 2-3 bottles of the Merlot. This is a lovely merlot. I do not consider myself a huge merlot fan because I prefer the bigger, bolder complexity of a Cabernet Sauvignon; however, this merlot is simply delicious. Sometimes I find merlots almost syrupy. This merlot is not that. It has a mellow taste but it is dry and crisp.
I picked this to go with our pizza tonight. It’s pizza and movie night at the Werner household!
