Smoking Loon Merlot

Region: Chile

Winemaker's Description:  The Smoking Loon Merlot opens with aromas of cassis, toasted brioche, toasted graham cracker and a hint of mint. On the palate, blackberry, dried cherry flavors lead to notes of Italian roast coee followed by toasted coconut on the extended finish. This versatile and lively wine pairs well with grilled beef in sesame dressing, grilled pork chops with sage-orange rub or roasted beets and rainbow carrots with a light sprinkle of nutmeg.
