2016 Sonoma County Merlot


“The beauty of Merlot is that it can pair wonderfully with all kinds of food, or stands on its own because it is so approachable. The trick is to make it interesting by extracting its concentrated cherry favors, then overlaying this wonderful fruit with perfectly balanced oak.”
~ Susie Selby

Tasting Notes

Selby Merlot is a delicious blend of dark cherry flavors, with intense nutmeg and clove aromatics. The classic Selby style is an opulent, yet elegant, Merlot with concentrated fruit on the front palate, a rich, velvety mouthfeel and a lingering chocolate finish.
