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! T

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.
