2015 Mari Mari Valle Central Merlot

On the pour, a vibrant red-violet wine fills the glass. Rich, ripe notes of red cherry, mocha, and sweet spices form an inviting bouquet. The palate is similar, showing rich notes of plum and red cherry layered over a hint of sweet chocolate and spice, forming a lush, medium body that finishes smoothly. This delightful crowd-pleaser will partner wonderfully with lightly spiced lamb or chicken.

Pinot Blanc is a genetic mutation of Pinot Noir, but it tastes nothing like Pinot Grigio, which is also a mutation. Pinot Blanc is mostly grown in Alsace, where it's also used to make a sparkling wine called Cremant d'Alsace.
