    Tastes like
    This is a repeat kwäffer! A hit in 2014, it’s now showing a hint of requisite earthiness to go with the red berries, blueberries and sweet spice. It still has that richness and, if anything, even more velvet. 
    Pairs with
    All things meaty and fatty, a cheesy flatbread or just a nice sunset. This wine has depth, and some firm tannins to stand up to BBQ ribs, osso buco and a juicy steak.
    Good for
    The elegant, velvety feeling you’ll find in the mouth can be described as “supple.” This makes the wine a good match with substantial food, but also nice to sip on its own—because it feels good!


    Why we're drinking this
    This brilliant Merlot from Rosewood Estates Winery is coming along superbly. Since our last offering of this wine two years ago (to rave reviews!), it’s evolved with gorgeous earthy tones and even more velvety texture. Rosewood is a family-run winery that puts sustainability and quality at the forefront. This Merlot wins awards year after year because it’s bursting with character and presence. What a treat to enjoy this now that it’s had a few years in bottle. (Meet your kwäf Taste Buds)

    Tasting note
    There’s serious moxie here. On the nose, it has a perfume of fresh red berries and light spice, with a hint of earthiness. There’s even some blueberry and violet. All of this succulent fruit fills your mouth like a torrent of deliciousness. The wine has solid structure, beautifully balanced acidity and soft tannins. It’s maturing and approaching its peak, but still has a couple of years to go. But you’ll have a hard time leaving it alone in the cellar…
