The beauty of Merlot is that it can pair wonderfully with all types of food, or stand on its own because it is so approachable. But the trick is to make it interesting by extracting its concentrated cherry flavors, then overlaying this wonderful fruit with perfectly balanced oak.

Tasting Notes

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.
