Tasting Notes

A charmingly, deliciously, fruited Merlot. This plummy Bordeaux brims over with farm stand fruit, ripe berries, and cool acidity. Medium-bodied and crowd-pleasing. Try it at your next dinner.

Staff Pick Notes

Les Vacances de Monsieur Merlot just means "the vacation of Mr. Merlot." I think of this as kind of a break or a little jaunt for your palate, because this wine is so yummy and refreshing.
