Toad Hollow Vineyards 2012 Merlot
Sonoma County, California

Occupying the grounds of a former apple orchard in Sonoma's Russian River Valley, Toad Hollow's Richard McDowell vineyard boasts the sandy soil and moderately warm climate that make for great Merlot. The 2012 Merlot is a lush and elegant wine with bright cranberry and currant aromas. It imparts a lush taste of rich raspberry, strawberry and floral notes on the palate.

Suggested Cut: This rich Merlot tastes wonderful with a tender, grilled flat iron steak.

Rating: 13/20

Price: $14
