2019 Hendry 'Block 13' Merlot
Medium-ruby color. On the nose, deep, dark berries, toasted bread, evergreen, spice. On the palate, light-to-medium body, moderate tannins, and pleasant, dark berry and cherry fruit flavors, finishing with mouthwatering acidity. Balanced, flavorful, complex enough to return to in the glass for reexamining. A moderately structured wine that will be a versatile pairing partner. This wine will pair with so many red-wine-friendly favorites: pot roast, burgers, meatloaf, warm-spiced shawarma, meaty Bolognese, or polenta with fontina and braised short ribs.
