Kent Rasmussen Notes:
Merlot is for food….be it lunch, dinner, or even
breakfast — I can’t think of a better wine to go with everything “food”
- even bacon and eggs. It is just
the right wine for anytime and anywhere — no thought….but open a Merlot!
The 2014 Ramsay Merlot fits the above description
perfectly. It is balanced and
accessible, yet by no means a light-weight.
It is fresh, firm, subtle and pretty.
It is my idea of a lovely summer-by-the-stream or a gleaming-snowy-night
— multi-layered and multi-faced. It
is inconceivable that this wine can’t be a friend.
