Wine Description:
Acre Merlot is a red wine produced by Acre wines in California. Based in Napa, Acre both grows their own fruit and buys more in. Acre place a strong focus on sustainable practices, even outside of the vineyard and are notable for their use of light weight bottles. The Merlot is often a sleeper pick due to the fruit often coming from higher quality sties than they generic Napa Valley label would suggest. The 2019 Merlot for example was all sourced from a single vineyard in Calistoga. The wine sees more than 18 monthis in a high proportion of new oak. It is a plush style with a generous full body, velvety tannins and chocolate and black fruit nuances. This is high quality comfort wine for drinkers who want a glass of wine that feels like a warm hug.

Wine Expert Note:

Acre Merlot is a delightful red wine with a rich and velvety texture. It exhibits a deep ruby color, indicating its youthfulness. On the nose, you can expect aromas of ripe blackberries, plums, and cherries, accompanied by subtle hints of vanilla and spice from oak aging. The palate is smooth and well-balanced, with flavors of dark fruits, such as blackcurrants and black cherries, mingling with notes of chocolate and tobacco. The tannins are soft and supple, adding to the wine's overall elegance. Acre Merlot pairs wonderfully with grilled meats, roasted vegetables, and hearty pasta dishes. Its approachable nature makes it a great choice for both casual gatherings and special occasions. Enjoy this Merlot at a slightly cooler temperature to fully appreciate its flavors and aromas.
